Re: “The betrayal of Trans America

To Jshicke.. you're showing your relative ignorance of human sexuality. I recommend you watch the recent Katie Couric series on Netflix all the way through and you will come away with current, true information on the subject. I now know what an "intersexual" human is and I hadn't even heard the term before seeing the series.. so much to learn and so little time.

Re: “What to do when the director of the EPA doesn't believe in climate change?

Thank you, Jeremy, for your eloquent column. My heart sank when the current EPA head was selected by the the worst, most corrupt polluters and their minions, id est, the Congress, Trump and Bannon. Only the least educated would fail to see the value of laws protecting our planet and they are the hateful ones when you're trying to discuss outcomes of pollution in a rational way. I recall being unable to breathe in France, Italy, Hong Kong, India and Los Angeles in the bad old days from air pollution. The EPA and other countries' equivalent agencies have had a great effect on this issue and even China is beginning to take it seriously. In addition, my recent trip to a reef offshore the Florida keys yielded a brown, dead environment when it was so colorful and alive with fish just 20 years ago. What the hell are we doing to ourselves by going backward - it's madness!!!

Re: “Review: PURE Theatre's 'Underneath the Lintel' is just the kind of magical play we need right now

We saw this play yesterday and I came away with a profound appreciation for the message so adroitly set forth by the reviewer, the playwright and most especially by the actors' actor, Rodney Lee Rogers. Now IS the time to take action for our democratic ideals and to protect the underprivileged and unlucky or risk losing our souls. Thank you, Rodney and Sharon. Power to the PURE!!!

Re: “What the Slager mistrial says about our criminal justice system

Hmmm...isn't it interesting how only white males are apologists for Slager's cowardly actions? Could it be a tribal thing? And such vitriol on top of it - wow! Dr. Wright, you are my new hero. I would recommend several books for the undereducated in race matters. The "Underground Railroad", "The Known World" and "The Invisible Man". Also, anything by Toni Morrison. Peace...

Re: “Only 19 percent of African Americans own guns — it's time to change that

I think Mr. Kearney presents an intellectually logical and appealing argument. It parallels the notion that "if men could get pregnant there would be an abortion clinic on every corner". Those of us who love equal justice find his argument superficially attractive but since we are blessed with the skill of critical thinking, we know that more guns will only lead to more killing for no good reason. I say disarm the general populace and leave the gun toting to the police and the military where it belongs. (With strong civilian oversight, of course!) Now, I shall wait patiently for the wrath of the NRA to descend upon my head...
