    Steve Reznick: Comparison, please

    The Aug. 23 editorial “Ungilded dome” criticizing Smith Center seating was yet another example of viewing UNC-CH athletics from a limited and biased perspective.

    James Sartwell: Ill-gotten video

    Regarding the Aug. 16 Point of View from Erica Meier “N.C. ignoring birds buried alive” calling for the prosecution of Prince Poultry for the manner in which he disposed of the dying birds of his flock: Did not Meier and her “undercover cohort” violate the law by lying...

    Thomas Graham: Spending priorities

    In your Aug. 27 editorial “Back to school,” I was struck that a Wake County elementary teacher’s request for a new pencil sharpener could be denied for lack of money. The debate over school and teacher funding has caused great criticism of our political system, but a school&#...

    Phil Henry: Obama not respected

    I read with interest Maureen Dowd’s Aug. 23 column “Obama alone again, naturally.”

    Mel Kosmin: Israel’s quandary

    Regarding William Jackson’s Aug. 27 Point of View “Israel’s dangerous miscalculation”: I have to disagree with the writer’s characterization of the situation. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s first responsibility is to Israel and its people. What foreign...

    A flyer mailed to area voters, paid for by the N.C. Democratic Party, states Rep. Tom Murry and Gov. Pat McCrory worked together to cut $500 million from North Carolina public schools. They are copying this message from ads being run by Harry Reid and the national Democratic Senatorial Campaign ...

    Bill Davenport: These dogs too fancy

    Regarding the Aug. 22 Retail column “Tasty 8’s serves up gourmet dogs and more”: Craft beer, micro brews, certified Angus beef dogs with fancy trimmings? Maybe it’s just me, but a hot dog with mustard, chili and onions for about $2 works a whole lot better. Then I can...

    Joel Dunn: Circumstantial support

    I wonder whether the proponents of the school voucher program, such as the writer of the Aug. 27 letter “Ruling denies rights,” would also agree that government support of other programs with similar intent should be continued.

    Gann Herman: Glossing over racism

    The Aug. 22 Past Times column “Aunt Betsy and her bull, Joe, were Raleigh institutions” was offensive. An editor sensitive to the systemic racism still prevalent in North Carolina would have put this 1906 story into context and named its harmful objectification of an African-American...
