  • So Soon Forgotten

    To the Editor:

    The First Lady's appearance at the Oscars was a very good opportunity to send a message about violence in the movies. How quickly she forgot the reason for her husband's trip to Newtown in December.

  • Second Amendment Limits? Be Careful What You Ask For

    To the Editor,

    I think we need to stop blaming inanimate objects.  There is not a gun violence problem, there is a violence problem. Has anyone not seen the violent twitter posts, and news reports or YouTube clips showing “Flashmobs” assaulting people, damaging or stealing property?  Even this violence is just a symptom. The actual problem is our society and culture.  We have stopped teaching right and wrong: instead we’ve been taught we can’t judge another’s behavior.
