Letters to the Editor
I am in full agreement with the opinions expressed by Henry Seiter Jr. in his Dec. 27 letter.
But his final paragraph — consisting of 96 words, five hyphens, five commas, two dashes, two quotation marks, but only one period — may be the longest sentence I have ever read.
A president ignorant about nuclear weapons casts a gloomy shadow over the future of humanity.
Nuclear strategy is not something to be tweeting about. And even the faintest threat of using such weapons can create international political turmoil.
Back in 1986, going door to door against us on the original Urbana sanctuary resolution for refugees from Central America were the American Nazi Party, the Ku Klux Klan, Phyllis Schlafly's Eagle Forum and the Republican Party of Champaign County.
Birds of a feather flock together.

The Nov. 24 edition of The News-Gazette contained a letter, from a resident of the Champaign County Nursing Home, that complained about the absence of certified nursing assistants during a shift just before the Thanksgiving holiday.
