Bill Ellis: The power of the internet in ‘Brady v Gelb’

In dueling letters, Carl Brady and Stan Gelb have discussed Republican policies. Gelb took issue with Brady’s statement that GOP policies are what America wants. Gelb cited various national research organizations and polls that confirmed the opposite. Following these volleys, Brady cited two prominent African-American economists, Walter E. Williams and Thomas Sowell, who he believes backed GOP policies as America’s choice.

Bill Ellis: The scourge of white supremacy

I hope readers have noticed that Sue Winthrop has been writing thoughtful and incisive letters and guest commentaries in this paper. It’s obvious to me that we need more writers like her. Her guest opinion of Feb. 14, “Conspiracy theories lead to anti-Semitic acts,” struck a nerve for me because we never know when prejudice will rear its ugly head, even though subtly.

Bill Ellis: The 2020 election continues

By Jan. 20 last year we should have been done arguing politics, especially concerning the former president. Yet here we are with half the country sick or getting there and the rest of us anxious about Donald Trump’s continuing efforts to overthrow our government. Will he run or will the Grand Old Party find someone new? Will anyone of sound mind accept the former president lost in 2020?

Bill Ellis: Looking forward

Writer and philosopher George Santayana, is credited with saying, “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” A similar phrase, “What is past is prologue,” is carved into a stone monument at the Pennsylvania Avenue entrance to the National Archives in Washington, D.C. I walked past that saying every morning on the way to work in the mid-1960s.

Bill Ellis: What Virginia tells us

Perhaps you also got this “informative” message from our governor warning us about the potential influx of outside money like what happened in Virginia. But there was one catch: You are asked to donate money to get results. Or, Republicans will flood our state with outside money from their big spenders.

Bill Ellis: Water: Our natural resource more valuable than oil

Nov. 2 is election day, and the main issue for me has not reached the pages of the Times-Call. Arguments abound on growth and taxes. But nothing is said on water. Why? I think the main reason is we have enough now and own a huge reservoir in the foothills that will last, well, for a while.
