Abducted Nigerian girls: U.S. should give to partnership for education

Thank you for running Ann McFeatters’ syndicated column in the paper [“Evil must be confronted,” Opinion, May 14]. She rightly calls on all governments to do what’s right, when it comes to girls’ education — noting the kidnapped girls in Nigeria, and Malala Yousafzai in Pakistan. Girls who simply seek an education that will give…

Abducted Nigerian girls: No one has the military will to deal with the situation

Ann McFeatters’ syndicated column regarding the kidnapping and enslavement of more than 200 Nigerian girls by Boko Haram certainly states the problem [“Evil must be confronted,” Opinion, May 14]. However, I don’t see her offering any solution. She informs us that “all 20 women U.S. senators demand to know why it was taking so…

Congress: We need to do a better job of self-governance

Syndicated columnist Ann McFeatters is angry with Congress, and she should be [“From Oso mudslide to climate change, our leaders have failed us,” Opinion, April 4].

Avoid higher cable costs: Stop Comcast’s Time Warner buy

After reading Ann McFeatters’ column “Reining in Comcast’s appetite” [Opinion, March 21], I just have to say that I agree wholeheartedly. Comcast has got to be stopped. The very idea that we have to pay to watch TV in our own homes is ludicrous, and the cost is outrageous and getting worse. And, like…

Religion vs. science: It’s not so black and white

With her broad brush, syndicated columnist Ann McFeatters paints me and my fellow Christians to be either black or white on matters of science and religion [“In American politics, it’s still science vs. religion,” Opinion, Feb. 14]. Too bad Ann, but the Christian world is filled with all colors in between and is…

The difference between ozone and climate change crises

Ann McFeatters incorrectly attributes blame for the real and devastating effects of climate change to “depleting the Earth’s delicate ozone layer,” a separate global crisis [“Listen up, America; climate change is real,” Opinion, Jan. 11]. Climate change is caused by the build-up of carbon pollution in our atmosphere from fossil fuels. The hole in…
