Today's Opinions

  • In memory of a good friend

    In 1951, 10 days before Christmas, three friends stood in front of Green’s Drug Store and shook hands for the last time. One of them, Bobby Daniels, never came home from Korea. His unit was overrun. A Marine said the Chinese got Bobby there.

        That December day, Bobby was wearing an Army uniform, Jack Karnes was in a paratrooper uniform and I was wearing an Air Force uniform.

  • Reining in the American empire

        Recent newspaper stories have highlighted the fact that military spending and the costs of the national security state can no longer go unchecked in light of the continuing economic troubles of our country.

  • Internationally famous

        Bedford is internationally famous. Or, should I say internationally infamous.

        I saw more news stories on the Stalin bust on Russian Internet news sites the Saturday before last. One begins, “, , ~,,f ,f ,ee,e -eOe e ',,e () < ,% e %,.” This reads, “Installation of a monument to Joseph Stalin on the grounds of the war memorial complex in the city of Bedford (USA) has caused a real scandal in American society.”

  • Benefits should be extended. Just don’t add to the deficit

    Congress was expected to pass a bill this week extending unemployment benefits to more than 2.5 million workers who had those benefits lapse in June.

        Extending those benefits — at a cost of about $34 billion — needed to be done, but there was a better way to pay for it.

  • Letters

    Parting from its raising

        I read with great interest your article entitled “Former Foundation board member concerned by Stalin bust” in last week’s edition of the Bedford Bulletin. 

  • Bill will help hard-hit construction sector while saving families money

    For eighteen months, I have been fighting for Congress to pass simple legislation to support American manufacturing and construction. Washington seems to lack the urgency that I sense back home on Main Street.
