    It is time to invest in education

    As commentators and pundits continue to discuss the aftermath of last year’s elections and the impact of political forces, others have been reflecting on another issue: campaign finance.

    In 2010, California candidates Meg Whitman and Steve Poizner spent a reported $206.28 million in their battles to be governor. In the end, Jerry Brown won the office.

    Supporting Mideast democracies
    I realize with the U.S. economy’s sorry condition, the president and Congress should take the opportunity to re-examine all U.S. spending and definitely re-examine aid to every country to which we now send our hard earned money.  I am not suggesting I know everything or even the right thing for all the different situations and scenarios involving our foreign aid.

    The meaning of illegal
    I am writing in response to the column printed in the “In Other Views” section of The News-Enterprise on Jan. 31. I am wondering if the writer doesn’t know what the word “illegal” means.

    Note to Indiana
    My wife and I really enjoy visiting Indiana’s small cities and towns up and down the Ohio River. They are very enjoyable.
    However, it appears that Indiana’s governor and state legislature are contemplating a statewide smoking ban. If indeed it enacts such a law, we will shift our entertainment dollars elsewhere.
    Our state, Kentucky, has for the most part locked us out of any entertainment and recreation venues in our largest cities.

    Obesity responsibility our own
    My wife and I read a letter submitted in the Sunday edition that lauded Walmart’s efforts to address our nation’s obesity epidemic by cutting prices on produce and “urging” suppliers to cut back on sodium, trans fat and sugar in their products. The letter states that to truly fight obesity, Walmart should encourage consumers to “ditch unhealthy processed meat.”

    Is it getting hot in here?
    Far and away the very largest contributor to global warming is the sun. This “device” has been warming the plant for multi-million (zillion?) years. This all assumes “warming” is energy or the motion of atoms (grouped into molecules.) Except for a few random meteorites striking the planet we’ve had the same number of atoms forever. Hopefully the last 50 plus years of space exploration does not significantly offset the gain of molecules from objects striking the planet.

    Religious freedom not just a day
    Thank you for the article “Celebrating Religious Freedom Day.” I did not know that we had a national holiday called Religious Freedom Day on Jan. 16.
