How can you defend McCarthy?

Elect experienced candidate
As a lifelong resident of Augusta, I would like to express my thoughts as to the upcoming mayoral runoff.Tom Moraetes, Augusta

Doomsayer exaggerates on socialism
In his opposition to federal grants for the Open Land Trust, the Aiken Thoroughbred Racing Hall of Fame, and the National Wild Turkey Federation ("Nation is sliding toward socialism," Nov 8), Andy Windham refers to socialistic and communistic predictions by Norman Thomas and Nikita Khrushchev. It should be pointed out that Norman Thomas, a pretty harmless man in the long run, is dead. Nikita Khrushchev, a not-so-harmless man, is dead. The Soviet Union is dead. American high-schoolers take part in stock market games. President Bush has nominated a thoroughly competent person to head the Federal Reserve.Bruce Brown, Augusta

How can you defend McCarthy?
Ann Coulter has an acid pen but it skips a lot ("Loony Clooney defends CBS," Nov. 11). Her pen fails to note that Republican Sens. Ralph Flanders of Vermont, Arthur Watkins of Utah and Margaret Chase Smith of Maine successfully led the efforts in the Senate to censure Sen. Joseph McCarthy for his outrageous behavior that brought discredit to the U.S. Senate. The vote to censure was 66-22.Tom Zwemer, Augusta

Without Helen, Augusta missed out
In the coming year, what Augustans have to look forward to is suffering budget cuts, higher taxes, a stagnant and underfunded arts community, back-door politics and racial issues. But I guess this is all Augusta knows.Michael J. Ryan, Evans

Judge's behavior was appalling
I had the opportunity to stand before Judge William Jennings III. I found him to be insensitive and arrogant, as well as racist. I repeatedly referred to him as "your honor." I paid $31 for a copy of my court transcript and his behavior was no better than someone in the ghetto.Mattie Mitchell, Augusta

How do you stop fraud without voter ID?
Well, well, well. Richmond County Democratic Party Chairman Lowell Greenbaum and the other liberal Democrats (sorry, I'm being redundant) got their way and got the Georgia voter ID law killed - not by the voters, but by a judge.Charles Kimbrough, Sylvania

Mays exemplifies leadership

Doomsayer exaggerates on socialism
In his opposition to federal grants for the Open Land Trust, the Aiken Thoroughbred Racing Hall of Fame, and the National Wild Turkey Federation ("Nation is sliding toward socialism," Nov 8), Andy Windham refers to socialistic and communistic predictions by Norman Thomas and Nikita Khrushchev. It should be pointed out that Norman Thomas, a pretty harmless man in the long run, is dead. Nikita Khrushchev, a not-so-harmless man, is dead. The Soviet Union is dead. American high-schoolers take part in stock market games. President Bush has nominated a thoroughly competent person to head the Federal Reserve.Bruce Brown, Augusta

Now that we are in a mayoral runoff, it is time for all Augusta to make a decision between two men. I would think that qualifications and experience should dictate how the voters make that decision. For that reason, I would like to speak on behalf of Willie Mays.James C. Murray Jr., Augusta

How can you defend McCarthy?
Ann Coulter has an acid pen but it skips a lot ("Loony Clooney defends CBS," Nov. 11). Her pen fails to note that Republican Sens.

Joseph McCarthy for his outrageous behavior that brought discredit to the U.S. Senate. The vote to censure was 66-22.Tom Zwemer, Augusta

Although it's heartbreaking to lose a boyfriend or a husband, there are few things as harrowing as losing your hairdresser. I discovered how much mine meant to me when I almost lost her.

Cleaning vinyl siding is an easy chore
If you're the new sheriff out to clean up the town, there's nothing to it if the town has maintenance-free vinyl siding. All such siding normally needs is a good rinse with a garden hose. But after a few years of wear and tear, you might have to work a mite harder.
