Decision to charge for online content a disappointment


To the editor:

I am very disappointed with your recent decision to no longer allow viewers free access to your newspaper online. There are a great number of people who depend on the online version of your paper to get their news.

You are allowing 15 articles per month free. Wow! In other words, once I’ve viewed 15 obituaries per month, I’m done — unless I pay.

How sad that greed has taken over your newspaper. I refuse to pay for something I can get free elsewhere.

Powell’s view of nature defeats itself


To the editor:

In Allan Powell’s Feb. 10 column, “Searching for Certainty in an Uncertain World,” he writes the following: “According to Bohm, scientists do not expect to find a fixed and final statement about the way nature works. This is because the universe throughout is in perpetual motion, change and ‘becoming.’”

I would ask Powell, is not the second sentence of his quote a final statement about the way nature works? If the answer to this question is yes, then the entire premise of his article is false. If the answer is no, then he and Bohm are simply wrong. His view defeats itself.
