Abortion isn’t murder

I wish there were fewer abortions, but I have to disagree with the idea that abortion is murder. If that were really true, then any woman who has an abortion for any reason at any stage of pregnancy is guilty of the wanton, premeditated murder of her own child and should get the appropriate penalty: death or life without possibility of parole.

Unfair to coal industry

Publication of the Associated Press article, “Ex-coal mining CEO asks Trump to resist punishing coal exec,” is another example of the Herald-Leader negatively impacting perception of the coal industry.

Impressed by Pett

I was reminded during the last 100 days what a necessary thing satire is, and how proud I have always been to be from Lexington, where Herald-Leader editorial cartoonist Joel Pett lives and works.

Women use health care

I’m pleased to hear that Sen. Mitch McConnell will “allow” women to sit in on the closed meetings for writing the new health care bill. This is a positive move. However, it is vital that women not only be present at those meetings but that they also have an equal voice, which means having an equal number of men and women and allowing all to vote.

Cheesy bureaucrats

If a child gets a cheese sandwich instead of a hot meal in the cafeteria because the parent isn't paying for it, the cost should be taken out of the paycheck of the asinine school bureaucrat who thought this was a good idea. Grrr.

The way to greatness?

Do the math: $337 billion divided by 24 million human beings equals a savings to Sen. Mitch McConnell and Rep. Andy Barr of almost $14,042 on each American the GOP throws off the health-care bus.

Flying unfriendly skies

The behavior of United Airlines is totally unacceptable. Take any other airline because this company needs to hear a loud and clear message. We, the people, do not approve of the way United treats passengers.

Weary of ‘winning’

Alright, Donald Trump is winning. He called it during the campaign, which is quite remarkable in and of itself. Now, I’m tired of his winning. Really tired. So can he stop? He can go home if he wants because all of this winning has to be wearing him out and, frankly, I’m exhausted. With the winning.

‘New’ is relative

The oldest bridge across the Seine River in France was finished in 1607, and it retains the name Pont Neuf (New Bridge). Perhaps we should give New Circle Road a little more than 60-plus years before we consider a name change, as suggested by a recent letter writer.
