Another veteran disrespected

It is bad enough that Miles Township does not respect those who fought in the Vietnam War, to properly honor them for their respective service apart from those who were just serving in the service at the time. They categorized everyone as Vietnam era veteran. Nothing done to denote the Vietnam veteran? At the latest township meeting, a Desert Storm veteran, who is legally also a Vietnam era veteran, asked for his name to be put under the Desert Storm War so his future generations would know he fought there.

PennDOT needs to do better

Each year several million people visit State College, and arguably the intended destination for a majority of these visitors is Penn State. However, of the three major highway arteries into State College, only I-99 from the north has clear direction signs to Penn State.

Not the American people’s values

On July 11, Pat Buchanan submitted “Alone perhaps, but is Trump right?” I disagree with Mr. Buchanan, namely his discussion of religion to government. He discusses the Polish people’s defiance of Hitler and Stalin during WWII, stating, “What enabled the Poles to endure was an unshakable belief in and a willingness to fight for who they were...with the courage and will to preserve a nation built on the truths of their ancient tribe and Catholic traditions.”

A tired argument

In a superficially lofty July 8 essay, David Gray, a Penn State vice president, explained why the university can sell with a clear conscience a crucial water filtering area to a rapacious, locally unconnected real-estate developer.

Get government out of health care

The best suggestion in weeks is to ax Obamacare and then start from scratch. Congress should impose much-needed limits on the ballooning costs Medicare, which would allow an enormous pro-growth tax cut. This would enable job growth and encourage a better chance for improved health care. No bill will be perfect but getting government out of the way would be an enormous improvement.

Stop racism from taking root

I have recently heard through friends and colleagues that black children in State College schools are called racial slurs and verbally harassed by some other children. Because teachers and staff might not be trained to deal with these situations, they don’t know what to do and often do nothing at all, so these practices continue unchecked.

No controversy with climate change

Regarding the letter to the CDT by Paul Warme (CDT, 7/6) on the subject of global climate, I continue to be mystified that so many people who do not understand the climate science still feel compelled to denigrate it. I have not read the Robinson book to which he refers (I knew G. D. Robinson), but the fact that data tends to be corrupted by errors and uncertainties, and that models have faults is no surprise to any of us or to our students in atmospheric science.

Dump Trump

I cannot find one thing that this president has accomplished in the months since taking office; that is one thing that benefits the American people. He is an egomaniac, narcissist, who acts like an extremely spoiled child. There is a way to “Make America Great Again” and that is to dump Trump.

‘Story doesn’t end until the lion roars’

By all accounts, the fat lady has sung. Jerry Sandusky is serving a life sentence. Three Penn State administrators stand (wrongfully) convicted of endangering the welfare of children and face prison time. The “whistleblower” has been awarded $13 million. The Paternos dropped their lawsuit against the NCAA, discovery is sealed, and the likes of Emmert, Ray and Freeh can slither off, unscathed. Tom Corbett got his revenge. Frank Fina’s “cover up” was never proven in a court of law, but nobody cares, including the sitting attorney general. Certain Penn State trustees are relishing the moment, believing we can finally “move on” without ever having to acknowledge their part in the unnecessary implosion of a great university.
