To the editor:

Here is a sampling of what may occur if the Democratic Party’s influence in government is severely weakened: Scientists concerned with mankind’s future existence will be treated to an increase in ridicule. Lakes will again produce fish that glow. The dark, sooty exhaust arising from industrial smokestacks will henceforth be portrayed as a harmless variation of pixie dust.

To the editor:

Joe Wilkin's column in your Nov. 6 issue could be more off base. His premise is that Democrats' image have been tarnished because the Republican party shaped their image. As one without a stake in either party, I safely contend that Democrats tarnished their own image.

To the editor:

My apologies to some really good people I like who happen to be Democrats.  This is going to offend you but it needs to be said.  Give up.  Your party only exists to give the illusion of providing a choice.  You like to see yourselves as the “Peoples’ Party” but you haven’t nominated a real populist for president since William Jennings Bryan.  You only win presidential elections when there’s an economic crisis or when Republicans turn stupid and manage to lose.  Do you really think Barack Obama would be president if John McCain and Mitt Romney hadn’t helped him by spending so much time running against themselves in the primaries?  The Democrats didn’t beat us.  Our own wing-nuts did that.
