    What’s misleading?

    Following Mr. Frank Splendoria’s warning (Aug. 20) about “science” being just a liberal plot to mislead and rip us off, I figured that if “scientists” said the eclipse would be midday, Monday, Aug. 21, it must be at some other time instead.

    Therefore I spent all day before and after instead, staring at the sun (without eye protection ­— another liberal “scientific” bit of propaganda). I saw no eclipse whatsoever, and furthermore am almost blind now!

  • Dispatch New Mexico - Snide remarks in this age of the big lie

    Donald Trump has been in the swamp he promised to drain for about eight months now, and guess what he’s found: It’s filled with Republicans!
