Reader Opinion: Get real - real fast
As if it needed to, the Brainerd Dispatch proved exactly what it has devolved into with its puerile, and flimsily transparent editorial attacking a businessman who has done more for the economic development of the "lakes area" than almost anyone over the last four decades. We who...

Reader Opinion: Editorial bias at work

Reader Opinion: Dangerous deceit
A May 3 Reader Opinion writer proclaimed her version of history, embellished with thinly-veiled contempt for America and all folks who disagree with her hard-left, anti-military, extremely dangerous agenda. If, indeed, there is a "small but vociferous group" using fear to destroy...

Reader Opinion: Caught red handed
I'm sure the Brainerd Dispatch called the April 22 letter writer to "fact check" his recent hypocritical, and seriously deranged rant against perceived American "bigotry." I'm sure Matt Erickson and Renee Richardson keenly pondered their policies of keeping Reader Opinion pieces sane...
