Letters | Deli is a good neighbor

Next up, will the various national budget plans under intense debate solidify corporate welfare and limit economic mobility for 98 percent of Americans, or will we truly lay the foundation for 'shared sacrifice' and fair opportunity in this age of recession?.

Letters | The death of bin Laden

Bin Laden, fortunately, died quickly, not like the hundreds of ill-fated hostages who watched their plane crash into a building or the thousand that were slowly incinerated or crushed in the following inferno. Bin Laden declared war on America and attacked, then we killed him.

Letters | Show restraint in Libya
