Is House Speaker Nancy Pelosi now in charge of our country (“Shutdown goes on as Trump offer doesn’t budge Democrats,” Web, Jan. 21)? Is she in charge of our government? Can she keep other members of Congress from trying to compromise? Can she alone shut down all negotiations? Finally, what are other members of Congress doing for the American people?
Low-fat milk vs. refined or "whole" grains ("School lunch rules OK refined grains, low-fat chocolate milk," Web, Dec. 6)? Here we have a distinction without a difference, and that is the point. You just keep the public confused and you can keep the big bucks rolling in. It is laughable that the American Heart Association and the Center for Science in the Public Interest are splitting hairs over whole vs. processed grains. What do they think of the processed (chocolate) milk? Few people know that the USDA food pyramid is nutritionally deficient.
