Letters to the Editor

Lincoln Daily News welcomes letters of appreciation, information and opinion on matters pertaining to the community. 
Controversial issues:
As a community we need to be able to talk openly about matters that affect the quality of our lives. The most effective and least offensive manner to get your point across is to stick to the issue and refrain from commenting on another person's opinion. Letters that deviate from focusing on the issue may be rejected or edited and marked as such.

Back to the dark ages          Send a link to a friend

To the editor:

I agree with your assessment, Mr. Editor. We are headed for the dark ages again, with taxes, user fees, skyrocketing gasoline costs, skyrocketing utility costs, skyrocketing medical costs and skyrocketing liability insurance premiums. The only people who will survive are those employed by government entities, until there is no one left to feed them, fix their broken equipment, mow their yards, plow their snow, paint their houses, do their taxes, build their roads, fly their airplanes etc. I believe that the average citizen will be forced to heat their homes again with coal and wood and that we will be reading by candle light, no more TV, no more computers, no more manicured lawns and finally, we will be just like China and other Asian countries, using bicycles and motor scooters for transportation.
