Jim Armstrong: here is some advice when writing a letter to the editor: 1) be coherent. While The Columbian might print just about anybody’s letter, we would like to know what in the world you are talking about. 2) Stop telling lies. Really, it’s a bad habit to get into. 3) Move to Portland, please. If you hate it here so much and love it there so much, move. Please.

Using fear and deception, Patty Muttay works to further the political interests of the minority. Sad. Pathetic.

Oh please! Graduation requirements are more difficult today? I-don't-think-so! HS is NOT that hard people. It’s really not a major accomplishment to graduate, but it is something a reasonably competent person can and should do. And if you can't read at a minimum level, you shouldn't graduate!

I can understand new immigrants to this country getting all excited that their child graduates, and I suppose some minorities that get wild with excitement when their kid graduates. But really - high school is a step in the right direction, that's all. Call me when they get their (NOT AA!) bachelors degree.
