Aging ungracefully
Just how much the baby-boom generation hates (or fears) aging can be seen in the latest cosmetic surgery rage sweeping the country. Not surgery per se, a procedure approved just this month by the Food and Drug Administration involves the use of Botox on the face.

McKinney seeking hero status?
The Chronicle's April 14 editorial, "Goofy theory," stating that U.S. Rep. Cynthia McKinney, D-Ga., has simply lost her mind is a good one. That would explain her making any reference that senior Bush administration officials had credible knowledge of terrorist plans for Sept. 11. However, please allow me to offer one other opinion about what her intentions may be. Kevin King, Martinez, Ga.

Blames oil-dependency on Demos
Analysts assert gas and oil prices have risen due to friction in the Middle East and cutbacks in production by the oil-producing countries. Iran and Iraq threaten to cut off supply to those countries pressing the war on terrorism. Robert Smock, Hephzibah, Ga.

God blesses those who bless Israel
I have two points: First, the April 9 editorial, "Crucial mission," was absolutely anti-Semitic. We do not have to agree with everything Israel does, but to list Palestinian propaganda as a news source is too much. Where is the evidence that "its troops bulldoze entire Palestinian communities, killing hundreds of non-combatants"? Gary Heffner, Augusta

Commission, fix thyself
Some members of the Augusta Commission still don't get it. They are whining that the legislative delegation was so busy trying to rewire the commission's rules of operation that lawmakers didn't get around to working on the commission's "honey-do" list.

Hoyt Goodson Jr.
We note with sadness the passing of long-time letter writer Hoyt Goodson Jr.

Terrorist ties
Who besides U.S. Rep. Cynthia McKinney, D-Ga., would seek to spread the inflammatory notion that President Bush may have known in advance about the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, but did nothing because he wanted a war to enrich his friends in the energy and defense industries?

Kill amnesty bill
Sometimes it seems we are living in an Orwellian world where words mean the opposite of what they're supposed to mean.

Deplores loss of privacy rights
The full impact of the events of Sept. 11 is just beginning. If ever an excuse was needed to nullify the Constitution in this once great nation, this was the very thing needed. In a recent documentary, Harvard law professor Arthur Miller had this to say about the rights of the private citizen: "One of the great principles of the law is the right of privacy. Thus, as free, autonomous citizens, we have a certain amount of privacy that should be free from intrusion, especially by the government..." Rev. M. Allen Flowers, Augusta

With Tiger, it's deja vu all over again
This is a word of encouragement for Augusta golf fans, since many may have been as upset as I was April 14 to see that last year's winner was not given the honor of helping Tiger Woods don his green coat. Roy C. DeLamotte, Augusta

Editorial cartoon criticized as irresponsible and profane
I was very disturbed to see the April 6 editorial page cartoon depicting armed Palestinians in the Church of the Nativity rebuffing individuals soliciting peace on the outside. It displays a gross misrepresentation of the facts. Sam Lake, Augusta

The soul of golf
I'm not a member of Arnie's Army, but I could have been, as he is the only golfer for whom I feel an emotional reaction. In 1985, the only year I've visited the Augusta National Golf Club, Arnold Palmer was the only "celebrity" I recognized (during practice rounds). I was thrilled, and he was so gracious. Alice Tanner, Sandersville, Ga.

Flag burning dismays ASU student
I am an ex-military policeman who also happens to be a political science major at Augusta State University and a resident of Summerville. James H. Steed III, Augusta

Commissioner doing a fine job
I listen to the media and read the newspaper, and I am really concerned about Augusta. I have lived here 36 years and, as long as I can remember, the city council controlled the city government. Carrie L. Burnett, Augusta
