Too many Americans are willing to accept the message the government spins without question. We need someone who can present the reverse side of the situation. Agreed, sometimes Mr. Reese's harping about Israel gets tiring but even that, at times, is a point to ponder. Perhaps I am too cynical about our politicians, not merely the present administration but all politicians, after all I have been around for more than 75 years, but I think it is a good thing we have a dissenting view.

Put Brown's fort on the quarter To the editor: "Montani Semper Liberi. " Mountaineers are always free. Our much-maligned and abused state stands in line with the founding fathers in illuminating a strong beacon of freedom. What image should be on the West Virginia statehood quarter? The image of John Brown's fort - which showed a startling vision of real liberation not only to America but the world. Peter Miller Martinsburg, W.Va. CAMEO House says thanks To the editor: The CAMEO House would like to thank the Health Information Technology Student Organization of Hagerstown Business College for sponsoring residents of our program for the Easter holiday.

On April 16, I asked readers to tell me if they were tired of syndicated columnist Charley Reese, who has been an outspoken opponent of the war against Iraq. More than 100 readers responded and while a number of them said it was time for Reese to go, many others said that while they sometimes disagreed with his message, they felt it was valuable to hear opposing points of view. Unfortunately, when I made my request for comment, I didn't ask readers to agree to allow us to publish their views with names attached.

"I am calling about the man on Md. 77 that shot that little white dog. I think someone should tie him to a tree and let the bugs pick at him until he is dead. That is cruelty to animals. " "With all the construction downtown and with the way traffic is backed up, I can't understand why there aren't any police officers downtown, especially around the college construction area and the courthouses, because people are still double parking there. That is part of the reason why traffic is backed up, you have citizens double parking, delivery trucks double parking and nobody can get by. " "The article by Charley Reese on the editorial page on Thursday was really correct.

When we began running Charley Reese's column about 25 years ago, he was a little-known writer. Over time, he found a small, but loyal national following, including readers of The Herald-Mail. Without doubt, Charley Reese's no-nonsense approach to life and column-writing struck a chord with our readership that no other columnist during that time did. Ever since Reese fell ill and stopped writing his column, we've been struggling to find a replacement for him on the Opinion page.

A nation of cud-chewers To the editor: Charley Reese was right on target (as usual) in one of his recent articles. America is in her final days. We began the descent into our own Dark Ages in the mid to late 1970s and are now teetering on the precipice of history. Who is to blame? That's easy - we are, the American people. Why? Laziness, pure and simple. Physically lazy, certainly. The U.S. has the highest obesity rates on the planet. But to our everlasting shame and detriment, we are intellectually lazy on a galactic scale.
