North Country board member lauds story, corrects one fact
I want to thank Bert Berlowe and Pulse for the article on North Country Co-op in last week’s issue. It’s great to see how so many people in our community are working to ensure that this store, and the ideas behind it, continue.
That’s why I had to write that it’s not accurate to say that the changes
at North Country are happening “under” my leadership. I and many other
workers and working members are lending their time and creativity to help this
co-op fulfill its mission.
Thanks for letting more people know about North Country.
Board member, marketing coordinator
North Country Co-op
Local “inspiration” responsible for thousands
I wonder how, from all over the world, the parents of dead children and those
thousands upon thousands of people who have lost eyes, limbs and good health
due to explosions of cluster bombs made by the Honeywell Company would react
to the Star Tribune’s Nov. 15 description of Jim Binger, former head of
that company, as being possessed of “elegance of character,” one
who “used his influence for civic good” and one whose “life
remains an inspiration.”
you, Elaine Klaassen, for health care article
Elaine, it's good to see you're doing something useful for the world in this
sad country—I just read your article on health care. I guess after the
election we won't hold our breath waiting for a new health care system.
It’s weird to travel to places where they have one—recently Iceland,
for example—and see how they don’t get our situation. But then,
I don't either. Damn many times over. Keep the faith ...
If creationists are right, where did fossils
Do creationists think that the creator put trillions of fossils on this planet
just to fool, deceive and mislead us? The fossil record is empirical proof that
life on this planet not only evolved but that it evolved for millions of years.
Deception is something humans do but not something a supreme being would do.
Giving God human characteristics is a mistake that creationists make. God is
supposed to be super human and good—not human, fallible or evil.
