Sisler: It's everyone's fault except my own
BOB COSTAS should have been chosen as the commissioner of baseball. Someone needs to get the game under control and baseball back to being baseball. I'd take the job if they'd offer it, but I would lobby strongly for a few rule changes.

Low voter turnout needs to improve
Now that this round of elections is over, we must congratulate the winners and not be too unforgiving of the losers, as without the two parties in the running, we would be unable to generate the necessary heat and enthusiasm to get any voters out. K.G. Watson, Augusta

Clintons find mail when they need it
Let's give Hillary Clinton the benefit of the doubt regarding her use of the ``J'' word 26 years ago. Al Kotras, Augusta

`Jesus Search' disgusting, hurtful
Regarding ABC's The Search for Jesus, what were they looking for? They need to go no deeper than their own heart to find Jesus. I can only pray for those who were involved in any way with the program. How can anyone with a ``mustard seed'' of faith belittle Jesus to our human level? Sandra Sewell, Evans

Fly flags at half-staff for Coverdell
After the governor of Georgia asked that state flags be flown at half-staff in respect for the late U.S. Sen. Paul Coverdell, R-Ga., why did I see only a few do so in Richmond and Burke counties? Harold L. Herrington Jr., Waynesboro

Pagan Left v. `regulars'
What's this? A California congresswoman planning a big Aug. 15 Democratic fund-raising bash at the Playboy Mansion in Los Angeles? Can't you just picture Democratic presidential candidate Al Gore cavorting with Burt Reynolds types at the mansion, replete with Playboy bunnies, in a scenario reminiscent of those degenerate scenes in the movie Boogie Nights?

Cigars, anyone?
So President Bill Clinton took the time to scold the troops on Okinawa about their personal conduct. Again the commander in chief leads by example. Pass the cigars. Jim Hartman, Aiken

Tobacco firms unfairly targeted
The July 19 editorial, ``Award up in smoke,'' was a disappointment. Usually, I concur with your opinions. Not this time. Clyde W. Fitzgerald, North Augusta

Abortions worse than Hitler killings
Partial-birth abortion is a horrible procedure that doctors use to kill babies. The baby has exited the womb except for the head. The doctor stabs the baby in the head and then sucks out the brains, ensuring death. Billy Bedgood, Martinez

Good teachers are being turned away
Perhaps Georgia students are at the bottom of the education heap because the local county schools are doing what Gov. Roy Barnes has made them feel forced to do. They are taking tenured physical education teachers that Mr. Barnes has displaced with his new ``let's see how fat our high schoolers can get'' reform bill and placing them into the math and science classrooms. Cherie Lee Portinga, Evans

He's no Stalin, but still rips repeal
Regarding the proposed repeal of the inheritance tax, several letters have lumped me with Lenin, Marx, Stalin, Mao and Castro for writing ``in an ideal society, each newborn would be greeted with an equal opportunity to succeed. Repealing the inheritance tax would be a step back from the ideal.'' Victor Reilly, Aiken

Kids learn not to trust each other
Regarding the July 18 article ``Zero tolerance,'' by no means should any threat from a teen, such as Robert Turner, teacher or anyone be allowed without a slap and a good one.Jeanne Reiter, North Augusta

Nurse finds Byne allegations absurd
I read with interest the July 24 letter by Diane Johnson regarding the accusations against Dr. Edmund Byne and I agree with everything she said. Not only have I been a patient of his, but I've had the privilege of working with Dr. Byne as a nurse. Janet Hall, Augusta

Quit waving the Confederate flag
I'm not African-American, but I'm tired of the pity parties Confederate flag lovers are having. I can't understand why white people are surprised that black people have the same feeling toward the Confederate flag that Jews have toward the Nazi flag. Howard Blanchard. Martinez

Send flood complaints to developers

The new U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' shoreline management plan for Thurmond Lake is now available for public review and comment.

Download debate
New computer technologies amaze the world seemingly every day. In the past year, the ability to easily rerecord music off the Internet has created a boon for freeloading music collectors, and is the bane of recording artists and companies.

Christians don't condemn people
In response to R. Scott Bedford's letter July 23, ``Hateful Christians'': If he finds Christians so hateful, he might want to look inside himself. Most of the time people attack what they do not understand or just because they are so wrapped up in themselves. If the world doesn't ``do it'' their way they tend to blame anyone but themselves.Barbara Mohler, Augusta
