Column: Obama's empathy

Letter: Windfall tax suggested for oil companies
Looking back on the spike in gas prices does leave some questions. Experts on the oil industry would not misjudge the supply and demand that drastically wrong. Oil prices are a big influence on the economy, and we never in my lifetime had a bad economy in an election year. So I start...

Letter: To drill or not to drill?

Letter: Plenty of fossil fuels still available
There are now more known oil reserves than ever, yet we are still being told we are running out of oil by "big oil," which wants to keep prices high, and the "greens," who want us to go back to the horse and buggy days. Unless America abandons her "fossil fuel is running out" mentality...
