We here at the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy Office get numerous letters on a weekly basis. Some letters are profound and others profane, but almost all never fail to entertain.

Tim Myers: Crime statistics: Can I come out from under the bed yet?

Several years ago I attended the visitation for the deceased father-in-law of a co-worker. While the family seemed fairly desolate concerning the death, my Midwestern stoicism and logic found little to connote tragedy.

The tragedy in Isla Vista

By now, most of us have heard of the terrible tragedy that happened in Santa Barbara before Memorial Day. A very confused young man committed a series of violent acts that resulted in the deaths of six college students.

David Hegg: We need to change perspective

While I was not yet living when it was fought, World War II has shaped so much of the world in which I have lived. It framed the whole idea of valor and courage and sacrificial service. And it wasn't only those who served in uniform who experienced the war, and felt that they played a vital part in bringing about a good and swift conclusion to it. In truth, we were a nation at war. Soldier and civilian were on the same team, working for a common goal, with mutual respect and honor.

Christine Korenthal: Free speech on life support

I have watched helplessly in recent weeks and months with a growing sense of alarm, fearing that our generation is witnessing the death of one of the most vital pillars of liberty: the freedom of individual thought and the free exchange of ideas.

Laurene Weste: Stay cool and safe this summer in the SCV

Memorial Day is almost here and that means a three-day weekend for most Americans. The annual holiday in honor of the brave men and women who've died serving our country to keep us safe and free is also considered the unofficial start of summer! Flags will be raised in honor of those we've lost, while families and friends will gather for backyard barbeques, lawn games, and poolside fun.
