To the Editor: Cholesterol concerns explained

I do not regard the letter from Mr. Olds as hate mail. People can disagree about matters civilly, though the slaughter of Americans will continue as long as guns are freely available to anyone with the money to buy them. I and all of my brothers served in the Armed Forces to defend the right of free speech, as did my father, who built bridges for MacArthur in WWII.  And by the way, I was not referring to the citizens of Wood County as low life's - I know many of them personally and know that they are the salt of the earth. I was referring to some of the people of the shoot-em-up Wild West a century ago.
The letter from Lloyd is another matter, and it speaks for itself. Lloyd refutes himself. However, I do want to clear up something. I never did a double-blind controlled trial on my patients.  I did a presentation on the prevention of atherothrombotic disease (ATD) when I was in medical school at OSU in the late 1960s. That spurred my interest in ATD prevention. So I started reading and trying to prevent ATD while I was in the USAF and I continued to try to do the same when I got to BG in 1974.

To the Editor: Writer emphasizes that equality is just not possible
Written by Harold Chapman

No one is equal. Not you, me, my wife, or anyone.
Equality is an idealistic fantasy, that will never happen.
Maybe on paper - but not in this world. Or in the Kingdom of God.
Here is why: We are all different!
Mankind's attempts to legislate, or mandate equality, is a farce.
Consider my wife and I: We have both walked down seriously different paths, on our journey to "now."
Now me: I'm an ex-gymnast, martial artist, singer-songwriter-musician, writer/poet, cartoonist/still life and abstract artist, have been called a biblical scholar, am ex-military, body covered with hundreds of scars, ex-homeless man, with a criminal record longer than both of my arms and legs (Denver doesn't like homeless people and writes out a lot of tickets to prove it) and am generally just a nice guy. (But enough about me.)

To the Editor: BG woman asks for more courtesy and kindness
Written by Rita Eckert

Where have respect, courtesy, kindness and tolerance gone?  My heart aches because of the vicious attitudes in today's politics and in our society.
In national politics, it seems that every action or statement elicits vile responses from persons with opposing views. Some of the letters in the Sentinel Tribune pre-election and after displayed this same disdain to those having differing opinions.
Now tonight, 11/13/13, I read Dr. LeRoy Lloyd's letter "disagreeing" with Dr. Feeman. His opposing view about gun rights did not necessitate a vicious posture and demeaning words ("baloney, so-called, ignorance, foolishness") toward the letter writer. Dr. Lloyd's last paragraph reflects the increasing prevalence of blowing statements out of proportion if it further reduces a person's dignity.
I say, lighten up, deal with others respectfully!

To the Editor: Portage writer unhappy with deer ‘hunter’ in her woods
Written by Judy Yackee

This letter is to the "hunter" who killed (or found) a buck in our woods, cut off his antlers and left the carcass to rot. All your "trophy" proves is that you are a trespasser, you break state hunting laws and you have no respect for nature. This creature you mutilated had more dignity than you will ever possess. I hope that everyone to whom you show those antlers realizes what a fraud you are.
By the way, was it you that killed a deer in our woods a few years ago taking the body and leaving the head and legs? That was a real class act.
If you are going to hunt, then hunt! Gain permission from landowners, follow the law and show respect for your prey.
