GOP sacrificed much in its quest for victoryGoodbye, justice, truth and courage. So long, respect, patience and kindness. The moral and practical virtues have been trampled by President Trump’s White House. For all the hoping that time and experience would moderate this leader and his followers, the speech at Harrisburg, Pa., ended this deluded expectation. That rally re…

America’s being destroyed by self-serving politiciansForget about threats from Russia, China, North Korea, Iran and ISIS. America is crumbling from within, thanks to the disgraceful “leadership” of both political parties and an electorate that’s drifting along on snooze control.A long time ago, Edmund Burke said “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil i…

By Janice Schlau “Only her hairdresser knows for sure,” boasted a familiar slogan in an old television commercial. It implied much more, I feel, than trying to persuade women to conceal their gray. Style-conscious housewives took the clandestine, economical route when attempting to compete with the allure of movie screen actresses such as Tallulah Bankhead or Lor…

Who should we believe regarding Trump probe?In his May 22 column, Douglas Turner states: “Comey’s notes, this column believes, confirm that Trump then committed a crime, an obstruction of justice.

Tonawanda appointees abuse the electoral processFirst Ward Alderman Mark Berube’s recent letter to the editor misused if not abused the comments of alderman candidate Austin Tylec regarding the filling of elected positions by Republican officials in North Tonawanda.

Caring doctor makes a world of differenceMy recent experience with Millard Fillmore Suburban Hospital and one emergency room physician has made me aware that there are still facilities staffed with professionals who care about the people who walk through their doors.

Loud music, bad subtitles annoy many TV watchersI am just another person who hears, and does not appreciate, loud music overwhelming the dialogue on TV shows. My second complaint is using subtitles in the same color as the scene. They manage to put a contrasting background up when they show ads on the same program.John S. VargaBuffalo

If others acted like Trump, they would be crucifiedPresident Trump uses the media to complain about people outside the media who oppose him, and he uses the media to complain about the media, and he and the media both win. This is truly Orwellian. And grossly disingenuous.The media made him, and he knows it. And likewise, he gave the media leading stories; stories that gen…

And, again, innocent people die as ISIS lashes out in a wild and vain effort to accomplish … what? Is it hoping to intimidate the West into backing off its role in defeating the terror organization in Syria and Iraq?
