Reality check
Twenty-five percent linen, 75 percent cotton — that is the material of which the U.S. dollar and other currencies around the world are composed. We know that money is nothing more than a symbol for an exchange. Its value is traded based on our society’s full faith that money is worth an equal am...

Letter: Amending the Constitution is not the answer
Editor, So we should change the Fourteenth Amendment to the Constitution to be more aligned with Europe and most of the rest of the world? This nation’s history springs from the opposite direction than that of Europe in that we are all very recent immigrants ourselves. “Legal” immigrant back...
Letter: North Central needs real change
Editor, When David Lim was running for City Council, I had a meeting with him and asked him: “ If I vote for you, what can you do for North Central?” His answer to me was: “I have worked to help improve communities like North Central.” To this day I have never seen him do anything to impr...

Letter: What will happen Donald Trump is elected?
Editor, I read the column by Jonathan Madison (in the Aug. 18 edition of the Daily Journal) and it frightened me. The writer said that Donald Trump is “making a mockery not just of the GOP field, but more importantly, our entire political system.” If he is elected, what will the rest of the wor...
Letter: Some people do not know the law
Editor, When I write a letter to the editor, I always make sure I know what I am talking about and I know all the facts, whether from my own knowledge, experience, education or training. If that isn’t enough, I take the time to do necessary research before I start writing. That said, I find John ...
