Deniers of evolution are just like Charlie Brown To the editor: G.F. Miller’s letter to the editor (June 3) was rather insightful — much more so than he probably intended. Yes, of course we remember Charlie Brown’s teacher: “Wah, wa-wa-wah.” How could we not? What we have to understand, though, about those old Charlie Brown episodes is that the teacher never actually said, “Wah, wa-wa-wah.” No, the teacher most definitely said something intelligent and meaningful.

"After reading Tuesday's paper about the hospital, why don't they just let Jim Hamill build his hospital at Robinwood and sell this hospital to an independent operator and then we would have two hospitals with some competition?" "Women do have a right to choose what happens when it comes to their own bodies. I don't have a problem with that. However, when it comes to abortion, it is not only their body that is in question, there is another life in question, the child. Woman's right of choice should be the right to choose not to get pregnant, not the right to kill.

“I just can't understand the Hagerstown City Council. They say they need more money to operate, but they just keep on spending the taxpayers' money and then talk about raising taxes. This mayor and council is the worst that I can recall, and I have seen a lot of them; I am 80 years old.” - Hagerstown “When it comes to Civil War history, all you see in the media is Abraham Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation and slavery - which was, of course, a huge issue - but what they fail to mention is the Democrats - that's right, the Democrats - they wanted to compromise with the Confederacy, allow them to continue slavery, and still run the nation, as one nation.

Nobody asked whether I wanted to be born in Cleveland. Nor was I consulted about whether I wanted to grow up in West Virginia’s “other” panhandle. I would have asked for a place with a beach. It’s a rare child indeed who gets to choose where he or she grows up. And none of us gets to choose where we’re born. For what it’s worth, had I been a member of the General Assembly, I would have voted against the Maryland DREAM Act, which permits some undocumented immigrants who went to high school in Maryland to pay in-state tuition at state-supported colleges.

The question posted Wednesday on The Herald-Mail's website was: A new law in Arizona allows law enforcement officers to question people about their immigration status. Do you believe this law is: A positive step toward curtailing illegal immigration or a law that could lead to civil rights violations? "Both answers would be true. The choices for answers are poorly worded. Enforcement of any law is an obvious aid to curtailing the commission of breaking that law. The Arizona immigration law "could" of course be a source of "profiling.

I'm getting real tired of this health care debate and all the people who are getting their "news" from talk-show hosts and bloggers and ex-politicians and other brain-dead gasbags who are referencing "death panels" and "Hitler" and "swastika logos" and stuff. I wonder if these people have even read the bill. They go around clucking to everyone in Washington, "Have you read the bill, have you read the bill?" Well maybe not, but you obviously haven't either. Nice try, but we get your schtick.
