Given that the economic report cited by a letter writer (“More on priorities” Roundup Jan. 31) claiming that the top 95 percent of all profits over the last decade went to the top 1 percent of Americans, came from a so-called economist at the bastion of far-left wing economics and politics, the University of California at Berkley, one has to consider the source.

An open letter to the Payson Unified School District Governing Board:
“These are the times that try men’s souls” is just as relevant today as it was in 1776, made clear by Thomas Paine. Make no mistake — freedom in America hangs in the balance.
