Our thoughts: Runoff Responsibility

We would like to remind you that there is a runoff election this Tuesday. While at first you may think it's only a runoff, in reality, it's basically the final election for these candidates. Your vote counts more than ever and could be the deciding vote for any one candidate.

If you don't take 10 minutes to vote in this primary runoff then you are letting the minority of the primary voters dictate your leadership. Please take time to vote Tuesday.

It is the soldier who salutes the flag, who serves beneath the flag, and whose coffin is draped by the flag, who allows the protester to burn the flag.

McCoy: The rules for a good debate

It's a fact: If you have an opinion, you can be sure someone will have an argument to match it. And a good argument is nothing to be afraid of. A good argument is a logical analysis of differing opinions. It's called a debate. The only problem is that good arguments are rare in our society. We're much more interested in the attack-and-win-at-all-costs style of arguing. Defend your religious views and you might be called a "bigot" because someone else doesn't hold those same views. Calling someone a bigot is the modern equivalent of yelling, "Horse ...
