Letter: Wake up and smell the drug companies
By Marvin Kroontje, Magnolia I watched the news when Martin Shkreli, who raised the price of the 62-year-old drug Daraprim 5,000 percent to $750 a pill, defended the price hike of an anti-allergy drug from $100 to $600 a dose. These drugs cost only $1 a dose to make. Shkreli remarked...

Letter: Columnist preoccupied with Trump
By Mike Bogle, Windom What is poor Dana Milbank going to do if Donald Trump doesn’t become president? He is so obsessed with Trump that he can’t be objective. I fear he may eventually suffer “Stockholm Syndrome” (a condition where you become sympathetic to your captors)....
