    A way to fight inflation Letter to the Editor: Rejoice in fake news (and what we can do to fix it). To everyone who thinks our boy Trump is a true Christian, I got news for you. The “insurrection” of 1/6/2021 was nothing but a “show” for whose syllable antecedent isn’t worthy of human waste. Re-elect “Damien” and we destroy all that America stands for.

    Frakes; "Reparations are in order" Letter to the Editor: I’ve been hearing the word “repatriations” a lot lately. I think it’s a good idea.
