FEEDBACK:   Three letters on guns and violence

FEEDBACK:   Three letters on guns and violence

Katharine DuV. Beard, Camden, S.C.: “Thank you for this paragraph in your article on gun control, ‘But don’t be fooled that banning bump stocks, which isn’t being completely pooh-poohed by the NRA, is real gun control. It’s a temporary concession to quell debate on bigger issues of real gun control. It’s part of the political game in Washington that assumes if you throw a little red meat to the voters, they won’t look at doing something more substantive and with more scope.’”

Other letters from Ben Moise of Charleston and George Wilson of Stone Mountain, Ga.

FEEDBACK:    On roads and “Summertime”

FEEDBACK:    On roads and “Summertime”

Frank Scalise, Powdersville, S.C.: I believe the State of South Carolina has to consider a bottle bill and an increased tax on fast food. All proceeds of unreturned bottles and fast food tax should go to road clean-up with county and local roads as the main focus of clean-up. Just as not everyone has children in school but still is taxed to provide an educated society for our future, not everyone litters but we need to do something to provide a clean planet for our future.

FEEDBACK: Hollings helped stir nation to confront hunger

FEEDBACK: Hollings helped stir nation to confront hunger

Herbert J. Hartsook: ‘Thank you for drawing attention to the continuing problem of hunger.  Years ago, state senator Isadore Lourie said that Senator Hollings “put a spotlight on that issue probably as the only man in the state at that time that could have done it. …  He had the prestige and the stature and a tremendous political following in the state.  I think through that mechanism and through the force of his dynamic personality, he was able to get the conscience of South Carolinians stirred up and concerned.””

FEEDBACK:   Two views of column on special elections

Agnes Pomata: “Encouraging an effective leader to step down because she is old could be considered ageism.  The fact that we have a number of revered men in Congress who are not being targeted or asked to step down makes me wonder if there is also sexism afloat.” Also in Feedback: Al Ray.
