If you have to choose the sort of egg you are, the choice is easy

To the Editor:

There are good Eggs and bad Eggs. People are like eggs. The outside isn't important. Color, facial features, gender and other outside features shouldn't define a person. It's the stuff inside that counts.

Spay-neuter program for cats is easy to participate in; sign up

To the Editor:

When does 1 1 = 11,606,077? When an unsprayed female cat, her mate and all of their offspring, producing two litters per year, with 2.8 surviving kittens per litter, are allowed to reproduce freely over a period of nine years!

It’s a mystery why Rep. Johnson voted no on reducing prez power

To the Editor:

Last Friday, our elected representative to the U.S. House, Bill Johnson, voted against a bill to recover his own authority to deploy troops in Iraq. Since 2001, the authority to deploy troops has been invested in the president by the law enacted at that time.

The reignited Israeli-Palestine conflict brings to mind some passages from a certain book’s ‘revelations’

To the Editor:

I am circumcised, so you could say I have skin in this issue and don't need to be called anti-Semite. President Obama had his once a year Ramadan dinner with Muslims, and had the audacity to invite the Israeli Ambassador to give a speech to the dinner guests who were mostly all Muslim. The speech's main theme: "Israel has the right to defend itself."

McDavis continues to shine even during #HateMcDavis campaign

To the Editor:

There has been a "Hate Roderick McDavis" campaign since the Ohio University president's arrival on campus in 2004. Since my arrival 40 years ago, I have never seen such a negative campaign waged against an Ohio University president.

Consider a plan that would impose a fee on CO2 emissions

To the Editor:

I sympathize with advocates in your community's efforts to have the federal EPA take over oil and gas regulatory primacy from the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (The NEWS, July 9).

Headline for Humans v. Zombies story glibly mentioned Ukraine

To the Editor:

The headline on the July 14 cover story about Humans vs. Zombies last weekend that referenced the Eastern Ukraine conflict was in poor taste.
