A few days ago I walked into a local grocery store and was informed by a large sign in the doorway that "Our Seafood is Safe to Eat!"

Letters to the Editor:Take caution when choosing biblical quotes

November 1, 2011

Dear editor, I read Teri Bednarz's opinion column, "Biblical misinterpretation confuses moral teaching." I was disappointed that the point she may have been making in general was restricted to only one particular example (homosexuality), which didn't validate her message. Bednarz explained scripture...

With the Occupy Wall Street movement in full force and spreading across the country, it's a good time to confront an issue in society which we are sometimes all too willing to ignore. Equality does not exist. We live in a society divided by class. These divisions are not always firm — it is po...
