Kent: Gore's class warfare; free speech in Ga.?
LOS ANGELES - Democratic presidential candidate Al Gore got it right in his acceptance speech when he said, ``The future is at stake'' on Nov. 7.

It was typical Clinton: Trying to take all the credit
IN PRESIDENT Bill Clinton's address to the Democratic Convention, he didn't talk about the initiatives he proposed - allowing homosexuals in the military and nationalizing our health care system - when he had a Democrat-controlled Congress.

Evolution, Christianity compatible
Hubert Baker, in his July 25 letter, ``Evolution a tool to ruin Christianity,'' shows confusion about evolution. Claud R. Caldwell Jr., Augusta

Augusta flood critic way off base
Michael White's letter ("City to blame for flood lawsuits'') is another example of his attitude that he is the No. 1 authority on flooding and drainage in the Augusta area.Robert L. Clements, Louisville

Shut the book on Kennedy case
I can't believe that a family would have to go through the ordeal that the Kennedy family of Martinez is being forced to endure.Dale Duncan, Augusta

Islam does respect other religions
John Craig's Aug. 7 letter asserting that there can be and has been peaceful coexistence between both Moslem and Christian Arabs with the Jewish community in the Arab world is neither ignorance nor naivete.Zameer Sheikh, Martinez

Can't tolerate more liberalism
What is wrong with the Democratic Party? It would probably be easier to list what is not wrong with it.David Chiera Jr., Augusta

Craig wrong to try Kennedy again
I am appalled by the outrageous behavior of our district attorney, Danny Craig.Charity Lyda, Evans

Killer Alexander E. Williams IV has yet to pay for the evil he did 14 years ago when he kidnapped, robbed, raped and murdered a 16-year-old girl here in Augusta, and stashed her lifeless, violated body in the woods.

There's more than just one Bible
Some church people ask why there are so many different churches when there is only one Bible?Marsha Adams Faber Hance North Augusta

'Emergency' aid too slow
``Emergency relief'' money available to homeowners who were displaced during the flash floods of June 20 is flowing to them - like a glacier, that is.

Read the Bible, not Potter books
I agree with D.H. Edwards' Chronicle letter. Where have all the so-called Christians gone? Answer: To purchase Harry Potter books.Arvilla Virgil, Harlem

It was typical Clinton: Trying to take all the credit
IN PRESIDENT Bill Clinton's address to the Democratic Convention, he didn't talk about the initiatives he proposed - allowing homosexuals in the military and nationalizing our health care system - when he had a Democrat-controlled Congress.

Harry Truman not a stupid president
Regarding recent letter calling Harry Truman the ``stupidest president ever'':Dick Donnelly, Martinez

Make Postal Service compete
The U.S. Justice Department is rightfully taking a hard line against monopolies and uncompetitive practices. ``Exhibit A'' is the agency's judicial assault on Microsoft for using its monopoly powers to stomp its software competitors.

Who says Bush has no experience?
This is to respond to an Aug. 16 letter from Herbert A. Edney IV who said George W. Bush has no experience except being governor of Texas, while Al Gore was a congressman, senator and then was vice president for eight years. H. Golabchi, Martinez

Riley's switch
``I think it makes very good sense for the state to have a carefully controlled lottery with the funds going to education. I don't care about our state funding education in Georgia.''

Congress pay raise unjustified
I recently read Congress will be receiving a 3 percent cost of living pay raise. John C. Whinnery Sr., Aiken

Sleep or get fat
It's worse than we thought. Not only do we get flabby by not exercising enough, but now scientists tell us we get excess back fat and multiple chins by not sleeping well enough.

Immunization matters
Day-care centers that aren't making sure the young ones in their care are immunized need to clean up their act.

Kent: Gore's class warfare; free speech in Ga.?
LOS ANGELES - Democratic presidential candidate Al Gore got it right in his acceptance speech when he said, ``The future is at stake'' on Nov. 7.

Bicyclists have road rights, too
Regarding Clint Smith's letter that cars should not share the road with bikes: Sharing the road with bicyclists is not a new idea, it is the law.David J. Collier, Augusta

Drugs and jobs
Who would have thought there'd be a connection between the nation's drug culture and its remarkably long-running low unemployment rate?

NCAA backs off boycott
The National Collegiate Athletic Association deserves a rousing cheer for dealing a serious setback to the stubborn campaign to continue the economic boycott of South Carolina over the Confederate battle flag.
