Right needs to shut it
Speaking of bobbleheads (“President has bobblehead backup,” Feb. 2), isn’t it time you stopped publishing letters from the extreme right and started giving us some options when it comes to “name-calling”?
Don’t forget the Sinatra at Americana
Tim Ra and BJ Ence’s (“‘Performer’ offends, encourages behavior,” Jan. 29) complaints about the “amplified music” of a longtime local folk singer is petty and unwarranted.
Granted, the guy is no “burliues.” But I don’t hear them complaining about the “amplified” Frank Sinatra music that is being pumped continuously throughout the Americana at Brand next door to where this fellow performs.
I guess one man’s music is another man’s earache. Ra and Ence need to buy earplugs or move to the “country.”

Not time to rebuke Supreme Court
The president is a Harvard Law School grad, where he was the editor of the Harvard Law Review. He has also been a Constitutional law professor at the University of Chicago and a U.S. senator.
In spite of this impressive legal background, he chose the wrong time and the wrong place to call out the Supreme Court justices during his nationally televised State of the Union speech.
Using highly charged, legally and factually incorrect rhetoric, he attacked a recent Supreme Court decision on free speech for corporations.
Hundreds of Democratic senators, representatives and cabinet members stood and joined him in rebuking the Supreme Court justices, quietly seated in the front of them. Their message was clear, if the Supreme Court doesn’t agree with us, we will call you out.
Isn’t one-party rule great?
