Several weeks ago I came upon a copy of a letter to the editor I submitted to The Columbian-Progress several years ago. Its text reflected my thanks and appreciation to the citizens of Marion County and the surrounding area for 25 years of support and confidence.
During the last few years, I have noticed an ever increasing amount of double-standard views on an also ever-increasing number of topics. The topic for my soapbox rant is the use of double standards in our tax system. There are a number of large corporations in our state that wish to announce their support for an increase in fuel tax.
