Ruth Bollig, Sartell The extent of your understanding of the plight of women and the bias they withstood in the early 1900s is amazing to me. I lived through that time, in fact, I lived almost a generation before Millie Moran’s writings in her book “Socially Challenged.” Your editorial Aug. 9, 2013 about “Just the way it was back then”
Bob Grise St Joseph Two weeks ago President Obama’s biggest fan, Dennis Dalman, stated “Republicans should put up or shut up” concerning health-care reform. Apparently Dalman is not very well read.

It shows students, administrators and teachers worked very hard to make the event a success. And they created a good fundraising model for other schools to follow. But my admiration for the event comes to an
Bob Grise, St. Joseph I found Kevin Kluesner’s recent letter to the editor to be a fairly mild rebuke of President Obama. Funny how editor and noted extreme liberal Dennis Dalman was so desperate to defend his hero Obama, that he put his rebuttal ahead of Kluesner’s letter. Obama a great man says Dalman. No, Steve Jobs, who created great
(Editor’s comment: Mr. Kluesner, you are conveniently forgetting virtually every initiative proposed by Obama was obstructed and undermined by Republicans in Congress, even some initiatives that had at one time been championed by the Republican Party. One of their weapons, to prevent any good legislation from passing, was the filibuster used repeatedly by Republican obstructionists, especially Tea Party crazies, whose only goal was
