Sees flag as divisive symbol of slavery
Arguments over the Confederate flag usually come down to the role of slavery as a cause of the Civil War. Consider the Act of Secession, and the Act of War, separately. There can be little question that the South seceded as a direct consequence of the election of Abraham Lincoln as president. Victor Reilly, Aiken

Blasts delay of new animal shelter
I was disgusted and depressed to see your picture of the man dragging the poor dog by the neck in the filthy Richmond County Animal Shelter! I would like for someone to explain why plans to build a new shelter for the animals have been postponed.

Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, determined that one of the major goals of her birth control movement would be the elimination of live births of those deemed inferior.

Dreams of ways to help homeless
With the upcoming Y2K, has anyone given any thought to the homeless? In a perfect world, it wouldn't be an issue, but in this city, and others, it is. What if we could find housing for the motivated homeless? What if the people needing a break and those who demonstrated they want a second chance to return to society were given a chance?
