Valley Morning Star editorial page

here is a practical joke by my younger brother

Their patriotism is questionable

Editor:
There was a time when this country knew what patriotism meant and we knew what treason was. It was an offense that would get one hanged by the neck until dead, if convicted of such an offense in a court of law.

Community Forum: You can support troops, but not war


Editor:
I found it curious, after reading Phil Lovegren’s letter, that he seemed to use the words “war” and “troops” synonymously. They are completely different, albeit related, terms.
War is an abstract noun used to describe a situation of hostile armed conflict. Troops are the very real men and women who are actively involved in this conflict.
