Editorial damaging to economy more than flag
The devastation of good men with good intentions is what happens when you are on the wrong end of a one-issue policy - a policy that means far more than money to a large majority of Georgians... Milton Gresham, Evans, Ga.

Pitts' 'principled dissent' guise doesn't fly
Regarding Leonard Pitts' March 24 column, "Ask the Dixie Chicks: No dissent allowed on our path to isolation": Eric Treesh, Hephzibah, Ga.

U.N. precipitated war with Iraq
The time has come when the United States should get out of the League of Nations - oops, sorry - the un-United Nations. Al Kotras, Augusta

Don't hold your breath waiting for Saddam and Osama to 'become' reasonable
Ellen Goodman wrote a good, fluffy column on March 22 ("Nation has gone from 'let's roll' to rolling the dice in Iraq") along with all of the "plays on words," "phrases" and catchy print bytes. What she sorely falls short of is making a compelling argument for sitting back and, as a nation, sticking our collective heads in the sand concerning the Saddam Husseins and the Osama bin Ladens of the world. David B. Caudle, Grovetown, Ga.

Where did Georgia's surplus of funds go?
Regarding your March 22 editorial, "Raise cigarette tax." I noticed you forgot to include the tax proposal on alcohol that our so-called Republican governor also would like to increase. It has become easy to pass on "sin taxes" to allow the government's unrestrained spending to continue. Dan Rutensky, Augusta

Americans are liberators - not aggressors
Americans were, and always have been, liberators - not aggressors, as the misguided protesters cry out. I say this with good reason. Jenny F. Morris, Augusta

Will someone explain Martha Burk's obsession?
I wish someone would give me just 10 minutes with all the protest leaders. I would hope to just shake some sense into them. Where are they living? Not in the same world as most of us. Margaret Ertz, Evans, Ga.

This war is not a waste of lives
As many are doing, I've been watching the progress of the war. I hear of the deaths of the young men, and sadness overwhelms me. Joan Kennedy, Grovetown, Ga.

Bush commits 'capital crime' with war to change world order
President George W. Bush has committed "a capital crime" in modern international law: an attack against another state in violation of the United Nations Charter. He has abandoned modern-day law and order to plunge the world back into the dark days of warfare and jealously guarded empires. Mohsin Ansari, Evans, Ga.
