Why does the Mail Tribune continue to put Bill Varble's fictional Rogue Viewpoint on the front page? His recent work of fiction was not newsworthy. New insight into the JPR dilemma was absent. Besides, JPR is not a Greek tragedy, but just a touch of Ashland's culture spreading to Medford!

Mail Tribune opined that attempts to repeal Obamacare are a jeer. Trying to repeal bad legislation which will raise taxes, thus is a job killer, deserves a cheer. A Republican Congress and president would pull the plug on Obamatax and lead the way out of this straight line, jobless recovery created by President Obama.

Many letters to the editor depict the ignorance of many concerning the state of our economy. The United States government is on pace to exceed a $1,000,000,000,000 deficit for the fourth straight year. Interest for the month of June to cover the $15,871,l66,712,270.85 national debt was $103,886,876,062.52!

The Mail Tribune should daily inform the readers about the state of our economy. Daily post our national debt and the amount of interest being paid. Don't use such terms as billions, millions or trillions. Express the amount as penned above. Be informative and stamp out ignorance. — Bill Hartley, Medford

"What's the matter with Kansas" (2004) exploring Americans voting against their own interests may return.

Supporting Romney and Republicans endorses government by the 1 percent, for the 1 percent and of the 1 percent. Historically, no presidential candidate has had greater wealth, such inability to understand problems facing average Americans, or greater commitment to widening the gap between the 1 percent and the 99 percent. At Bain he promoted outsourcing American jobs overseas, bankrupting companies to make money and hidden accounts offshore.

Voting Republican rewards three-and-a-half years of commitment to gridlock, obstructionism, economic stagnation, and undermining the president and the nation whenever possible. It endorses promoting polluted air and water, a banking industry run amok, rejecting climate science, and sacrificing future generations on the altar of short term economic profits for the 1 percent.

A candidate funded by corporations and the 1 percent would represent only them. — Alan Journet, Jacksonville

We celebrate with fireworks twice a year, the Fourth of July and New Year's Day.

Several new residents have moved into our neighborhood this past year. One put his boom box in his front yard for all to hear for hours, while another neighbor brought out the barbeque and four houses in a row had excessive fireworks that they call "missiles." The kids screamed and yelled starting around 7 p.m. and the "grown-ups" guzzled down grown-up drinks waiting for dark. The missiles were launched around dusk and all around tried to keep up with boom, boom, boom while the sky was lit up with color.

I like to see people have a good time; however, next door to one missile launcher live seniors in a mobile home, and every missile that was launched shook the mobile home. Another senior across the street tells of so many missiles launched that they were caught in the tree tops and almost set the tree on fire before fizzling out. They finally ran out of fun around 11:30 p.m.

I agree, let's have consideration for each other. Why not go where missiles are being launched for your entertainment? — A. Hershey, Medford
