• I believe Presstalk should be neutral politically. I just received my copy (of the Nov. 4 issue), and there was a comment about how wonderful (a U.S. Senator from Tennessee) is.

Personally, I don’t share this opinion. Your paper should be neutral: it should be neither Democratic nor Republican.

• Cheers and a heartfelt thanks to (Tennessee U.S. Rep., 5th District) and (Tennessee U.S. Rep., 9th District) for honoring the citizens of Tennessee with their historic vote to pass the bipartisan infrastructure bill. This is a game-changing investment in Tennessee and our country and a victory for all Americans.
