The first inalienable right
Re: “Protesters seize political momentum, rally against Planned Parenthood” [Opinion, Feb. 12]: Be careful, your bias was showing through the choice of words used in the coverage of the Pro-Life Rally held in front of Planned Parenthood. The hundreds who were assembled there to speak out on behalf of the unborn, innocent victims who have no voice, were mislabeled. Your report called them “abortion-rights opponents.” In fact, we are not opponents. We are proponents for life. Life is the first inalienable right, a natural right listed in our Declaration of Independence. Life is an American value.

I never noticed until now how much the entertainment industry loves to award themselves. Not a weekend can go by without a celebrity pat on the back festival with a political diatribe chaser from the thespians de jour. For a group that screeches inclusion and fairness, they sure do like to pick a lot of winners and losers. What I can’t understand is why the Register puts Grammy results as front page above-the-fold news. And somehow celebrity news found its way to page two on a daily basis. What’s going on? Why are the lives and opinions of vacuous celebrities leading our news? Put them and their lives in the entertainment section where it belongs.

Re: “Decentralize government to resolve country’s divisions” [Opinion, Feb. 14]: I just read Joel Kotkin’s column on the solution to our country’s divisiveness. What a great article filled with common sense, logic and a true sense of how our country is supposed to work. He fairly shows how both sides have contributed to the problem and doesn’t attempt to change them. Instead he says “the country is too diverse, too different in terms of economics and ethnicity, to find common ground on every issue.” Unless we admit that and accept it we’ll never stop fighting. We are different states for a reason. That’s great wisdom we would be smart to embrace.

Trump wall? Instead of spending $21 billion on the wall why not hire guys to stand guard at the tunnels the criminals use? That’s next, the Trump tunnel.
