Reassessing the Chemical Industry

Letters to the Portland Phoenix editor, December 16, 2011
Every time I pop some leftovers in the microwave, the thought runs through my mind that I might be eating an extra dosage of some 14-letter synthetic chemical, added to the plethora of components in the plastic container.

Context: What teachers are for

Letters to the Portland Phoenix Editor, September 16, 2011
How can it be called teaching if someone stands at the front of the class and delivers facts? A textbook can do that.

Let's compromise

Letters to the Portland Phoenix Editor, July 22, 2011
I am writing in response to the article that ran in the paper on July 1 entitled " Democrats Celebrate Victory in the Face of Defeat " (by Lance Tapley).

Ranked-choice voting + beer

Letters to the Portland Phoenix editor, June 17, 2011
Perhaps the following example illustrates what's wrong with plurality voting in terms Al Diamon can understand (see " Got What It Takes ," June 10).

Don't help DeCoster

Letters to the Portland Phoenix Editor, May 6, 2011
Thank you for your recent article regarding GOP representative Dale Crafts's outrageous bill that would absolve Jack DeCoster's factory farms of requirements to pay minimum wage and overtime to their workers, and allow collective bargaining.

Governor, budget-cut thyself

Letters to the Portland Phoenix editor, April 8, 2011
Governor LePage is focused on making deep cuts to the state's budget (see "Down Again," by Al Diamon, April 1). So much so, that he is willing to bring the government to a halt. It is certainly difficult to criticize his determination.

My nightmare, too

Letters to the Portland editor, April 2, 2011
It is about time this state changed and LePage is doing everything he can to get this state out of the Dumpster.

Not-so-progressive nightmares and the Buy Local survey

Letters to the Portland Editor, March 25, 2011
Deirdre Fulton's characterization of the nightmare unfolding in Augusta is accurate (" Progressive Nightmare ," March 18); her characterization of that as a "progressive" nightmare is not.

Those in need speak

Letters to the Portland Editor, March 18, 2011
Residential substance-abuse treatment centers in Maine may be forced to close their doors as a result of severe cuts proposed in Governor Paul LePage's budget.

Protect teachers' pensions

Letters to the Portland Editor, February 25, 2011
Our governor proposes more money for K-12 education, no cuts in funding for higher education, and increased funding for Medicaid. Good for almost everyone. He also promises to lower the personal state income tax for upper-income earners, and to eliminate the estate tax. Better for the already fortunate.

Anti-diversity is bad for business

Letters to the Portland Editor, January 28, 2011
As he has done with environmental leaders, Governor Paul LePage needs a forum to hear from Maine immigrant and civil-rights leaders. This is made all the more urgent when one considers his "kiss my butt" sound-bite refusal to meet with the NAACP because they are a "special interest."

Population control, not insect eating

Letters to the Portland Editor, November 26, 2010
In her article " Eat Me! Delicious Insects Will Save Us All ," Deirdre Fulton writes that "bugs could be a solution to a host of emerging problems, including world hunger and environmental woes." It seems to me that adding a billion people every 13 years to the home planet's human burden (the current growth rate) will outstrip any such "solution."

Story-telling saves lives

Letters to the Portland Editor, October 15, 2010
The past three weeks have been incredibly upsetting. Six young men have taken their lives due to the anti-gay bullying they were the focus of at their schools. None of these young men were connected — they did not go to the same schools, have the same socio-economic backgrounds, come from the same hometown.

Learning lost

Letters to the Portland Editor, September 10, 2010
I read Deirdre Fulton's recent article in the Phoenix about the impact of technology and "learner-centered" education on the college experience with a mixture of admiration, because I think she got most things correct, and dread, because I think she got most things correct.
