LETTER: Ramirez cartoon on gun violence

I’m glad Michael Ramirez chose to address America’s epidemic of gun massacres in his Feb. 15 cartoon. I agree with him that mental illness, culture, indifference, inhumanity, desire for fame and evil are ingredients in our mass shootings. My question: Are we the only country with these character flaws and, if not, why don’t any other countries have more massacres than days in the year like we do?

LETTER: A teachable moment on the U.S. debt

Thank you to Richard Strickland, whose May 26 letter to the Review-Journal about the federal debt provides a teachable moment for all of us.
