Letters to the Editor

Friday’s Letters to the Editor

Press Democrat readers comment on colorful Sonoma Valley storefronts, taxing tires and more.

Paul Gullixson

Gullixson: How swiftly the tide of public opinion changes

It seems like ancient history now. But it was just 10 years ago that Americans were so opposed to gay marriage that pundits were pointing to ballot initiatives banning same-sex marriage — similar to Proposition 8 in California — as keys to the re-election of President George W.

Pete Golis

Golis: Still lots of talk about housing

Minimum-wage and rent-control proposals are symptoms of a society that waited too long to pay attention to the well-being of people who have less.

National Columnists

Kristof: Starvation as a product of war

One gauge of the famine looming in South Sudan is that people are simply collapsing from hunger.
