Is there still voter-ID confusion?


Are Pa. voters are still confused about whether they need to show photo ID at the polls?

Yes, law enforcement officials' support means people will listen

No, don't buy the notion that Pre-K deters crime
  94 (44.8%)
Yes, but it will have to await a better economic climate
  54 (25.7%)
No, Head Start-type programs have become a political football in Red State / Blue State battles

Let the word go forth: Voters don't have to be in pictures

Letters to the Editor
How ironic that your letter writer ("Borders: Closed," Thursday) is so afraid that those nasty refugees - "undesirables," as he calls them - will be "shooting up our schools," "mowing us down" in movie theaters, and "murdering us . . . in our churches."
UNTIL THREE years ago, my wife and I were like a lot of immigrants: Drawn to the U.S. by jobs better than what we could find at home, we saw ourselves as outsiders - temporary resident aliens, as the government called us. Even living in Washington, I followed U.S. politics with detachment, the way you'd watch a football game between two schools in states you've never been to. When our friends back home in Canada asked if we planned to stay, we'd shrug and joke about the weather being better.
