Letter: An antidote to the Iran agreement naysayers

Billy Joel said, “Only the good die young,” and while that might not be true all of the time, it certainly was true on August 16.
Letter: Being pro-life should necessarily mean opposing death penalty


The Gazette editorial “Pro-death: Brutal custom”, (July 27) was correct, but failed to go far enough. The same title could have been applied to an editorial about abortion.

I am against abortion except for the...
