Whether there was a cover-up or a confused response in the Benghazi fiasco that caused the death of the American ambassador and three other Americans is not the central point to me. Of course those are serious accusations. But what concerns me more is the fact the attacks in Libya should never have occurred in the first place.
Recent actions of the North Dakota Legislature designed to restrict abortion have, predictably, aroused fury of many on the other side. The outrage frequently takes the form of denouncing those who seek to impose their religious convictions on others.
There’s nothing more rewarding than being part of a city of more than 100,000 people who come together each year for the Fargo Marathon and make it as popular as a national holiday. Not only is the marathon about stamina and athleticism, it’s about commitment, determination, teamwork, accomplishment and, most of all, heart.

Joshua Gatlin ought to be thrown in jail. He is one of the ex-Bison football players who pleaded guilty to petition fraud last fall. He, among others, was ordered to serve 50 hours of community service as part of his probation (Fargo Forum online May 21).
Smokers, please consider the fact that everyone who walks their dogs is expected to carry a plastic bag to deposit the pet’s droppings so the people who use those sidewalks after them don’t have a mess to look at.
As a Moorhead resident, I am so grateful to the city of Moorhead cleanup crew. In one day last week, we had our garbage, yard waste, recycling and big stuff from the garage picked up. It was such a relief to see the boulevards empty all around town as the week progressed.
