Letter: Meat is not causing obesity epidemic
Posted: January 16, 2015

I am writing about David Rich’s letter: “Most deadly weapon is our fork” (Jan. 6, EVT). Meat is not what is causing our obesity and diabetes epidemic, but rather carbohydrates — especially processed carbohydrates.

Letter: Police cannot get a break from media or the White House
Posted: January 07, 2015

I find it ironic that the Los Angeles Police Department is extolled as a national model of “race relations” in our liberal news and TV media. That is certainly not how LA’s majority population regard their police force. They have seen the LAPD abrogate their police cruiser motto of “To Protect and Serve” time and time again since the race riots from the 1960s to today. Local TV coverage on the ground and from helicopters during these riots show a motto of “run, don’t walk” away from any confrontation with these rioters, looters and arsonists. The orders to observe but not confront had come down from LA’s liberal mayors and police chiefs to the rank-and-file. Consequently, Los Angeles doesn’t have a law enforcement department, it has an “acquiescence” department. To the vast majority of American citizens, they don’t want their law enforcement department to win accolades for what laws they are not enforcing or over-looking for reasons of “political correctness.” They look to their police men and women for adhering to the oath of law enforcement that they took when their badges were pinned on.

Letter: Most dangerous weapon is our fork
Posted: January 06, 2015

It’s time for New Year’s resolutions, particularly those about our health. Although gun violence remains the leading cause of death among young people, our most dangerous weapon is still our fork. Forty-five times as many die of chronic diseases linked to a diet containing animal products, sugar, and salt.

Letter: What will Gilbert Town Council come up with to embarrass us in 2015?
Posted: January 05, 2015

The Gilbert Town Council has recently decided to pull the trigger, so to speak, and allow concealed weapons in public buildings. Any reluctance to take this action was overcome by the assurance that only those who had a concealed weapons permit would be allowed to carry guns in Gilbert public buildings. Those without permits would be expected to store their weapons in lockers provided by taxpayer expense. Let’s hope the lockers are big enough to accommodate assault rifles in addition to handguns.
