State should protect inmates’ rights

Letters to the Portland Editor, October 16, 2009
As Lance Tapley points out, denying prisoners access to human-rights protections is a mistake (see "Less Than Equal," October 2).

Moderation and Elephants

Letters to the Portland editor, September 25, 2009
I appreciate Deirdre Fulton's nuanced reflection on moderates Olympia Snowe and Susan Collins (see "We Told You So," September 18) except that she fails to note the elephant in the picture.

Prison activist: Board chairman wrong

Letters to the Portland Editor, September 11, 2009
I just finished reading the letter from Jon Wilson. Mr. Tapley was correct, the Board of Visitors is not living up to its mandate to represent the public's concerns about the Maine State Prison, nor is it minimally accountable in that it never filed an annual report until provoked by the scrutiny of Mr. Tapley's investigative journalism.

Article aided big oil

Letters to the Portland Editor, September 4, 2009
Nothing helps big oil, and big coal, more than a piece like "What's Wrong With Wind Power?" (by Deirdre Fulton, August 21).

Letters to the Portland Editor
The venting of wind-power skeptics in the Phoenix piece " What's Wrong With Wind Power " (by Deirdre Fulton, August 21) really misses a major point — global warming. When we finally get down to grappling with dangerous climate disruption all forms of non-carbon emitting power will rise.

Letters to the editor
Regarding Lance Tapley's latest effort on the Maine State Prison Board of Visitors (see  "Secret, Unaccountable, and Co-opted,"  August 14), what he sometimes refers to as advocacy journalism might be more appropriately termed agenda journalism.

Dump gay marriage and regroup!
A recent EqualityMaine campaign letter claimed that gay marriage is "the fight for our lives." I wonder whose lives they are talking about, when AIDS service organizations and community health/reproductive clinics across the state have been tightening their belts and desperately trying to crunch numbers.

In praise of Pfeifle
I can't tell you how much it means to have such a thoughtful, well written review of my new CD.

Commodity leads to scarcity
I've never seen Al Diamon quite so hysterical as in his column on the water issue. Nazi analogies of the Left are simply the Ann Coulter form of crazy, especially when you are defending corporations.

A great view of equality
The April 22 hearing on marriage equality at the Augusta Civic Center was historic, important, and, on balance, a wonderful thing.

Is Rick Wormwood an inbred Maineiac as some would speculate?

What was once a top-quality, prestigious paper, has surely come down.
Having worked at Guy Gannett for years, I have sadly watched the papers drop in size, content, quality .

Include everyone

Letters to the Portland editor, April 17, 2009
"Voting Frights" (by Shay Stewart-Bouley, April 3) is xenophobia dressed up to look nice. The assertion that people who are not full citizens are disproportionally less likely to have "learned what is going on" is without factual basis.

Report on True/False Film Fest was so true
We are two Maine natives, who attended the True/False Film Festival in Missouri, couldn't agree more with Christopher Gray's account of the festival and the festival experience.

Truth is — it is a great time to jump into real estate and purchase a home.
It was refreshing to read an article ("Hope For Young Homebuyers," by Deirdre Fulton) that portrays what truly is happening with today's real-estate market.
