Don’t besmirch a person’s good reputation
I’m writing in response to the recent article about the atheist who had a problem with the Middlebury schools administration regarding the way he was treated (The Goshen News, June 15). The reason I noted this was because of its similarity to an article that was written two months previous. That article about the lesbian who disagreed with Goshen College administration about their hiring practices. Remember that?
The article was about the same — a half column on the front page and a complete page (outlining) the person’s position on about pages four or five.
Aside from my feelings on the topic, in my opinion, any article that besmirches a person’s reputation — especially a person who has spent their career trying to help people, without unbiased irrevocable evidence does not belong on the front page.

History shows President Obama is no dictator
Our pragmatic and mild-mannered CEO Commander in Chief has executed fewer executive orders than any two-term president in more than 100 years. To date, President Obama has 183 executive orders, compared to Ronald Reagan’s 381 executive orders and Harry Truman’s 907 when he had a “Do-Nothing Congress.” So, with President Obama issuing fewer than half as many such orders as his predecessors, how does he qualify as a dictator?
Let me list the lies against the president:
• He is foreign
• He is not a citizen
• He hates America
• He is a socialist
• He is lawless.
You can add to the list of lies about President Obama. However, he is a Democrat, a Hawaiian, a Harvard graduate, a college professor in Constitutional Law and a former state and U.S. senator (four years) with more experience than Abraham Lincoln (one term as a U.S. Congressman and time in the Illinois Legislature) had when becoming president.
