Senators lost their credibility with vote
Ruminating anew on our weakening democracy, now again after this shameful capitulation to the gun lobby, it seems to me that our cold, ominous spring is appropriate. We need to take time to think about how broken life is becoming.
Instead of lovely, warm, nurturing spring, we are stuck contemplating winter and the breakdown of the life we have valued. There are so many circumstances that we need to turn around. We should bind ourselves together and start making big changes toward a good life for all; that is, a real community.
MARY HOLM, Minnetonka

Thanks a lot, gutless Congress, for preserving America the bullet-full — government of the NRA, by the NRA and for the NRA.
