Quest for justice

I understand the decision to include photos of the war in Ukraine, but I disagree with the inclusion of so many graphic images, especially on the cover. The subject of war crimes is heavy enough. I ask for greater discretion next time.
    —
Teresa Russell / Knoxville, Tenn.

We were disgusted when we saw the cover photo of this issue. Nobody needs to see dead bodies to know people are dying in a war.
    —Jake & Missy Vierzen/ Clarksville, Mich.

While the tragedies of life need to be acknowledged, in the interest of impressionable children, I ask that potentially nightmare-­producing images be printed only within the magazine, not on the cover.
    —Elizabeth B. Merino / Somerton, Ariz.

I was taken aback by the cover and article on the Russian atrocities in Ukraine. Because I have young children, it would have been nice to have had a disclaimer or warning for those triggered by graphic images of dead bodies.
    Mike Richardson / Tequesta, Fla.

I recognize that you are a news publication, but please consider that many of your subscribers have small children, some of whom delight to bring in the mail. Please save your more graphic images for inside the magazine.
    —Laura Icardi / Alexandria, Va.

I was surprised and disappointed by the covers for the Aug. 27 and Sept. 10 issues. While I understand these are real, heartbreaking ­topics that should be—and were—addressed thoughtfully, the images struck me as sensational.
    —Niki Stewart / Shawnee, Kan.

Stranger than fiction

It’s about time you covered UFOs! One thing I know for sure is that Jesus Christ will not have to die again in a hundred trillion other galaxies or solar systems on another hundred trillion planets on a hundred trillion crosses. He died once for all, and that’s that. We are blessed!
    Joyce Devivo / Grand Gorge, N.Y.

Baseball movies

I haven’t seen most of the baseball movies on your list, but I would like to add a good one. The Perfect Game (2009) is based on a true story of a group of boys from Mexico in 1957 that became the first team from outside the United States to win the Little League World Series. It is an amazing story.
    —Harold Hunter / McGregor, Texas

The root(s) of the problem

I was dismayed to see Andrée Seu Peterson list the names of mass shooters in her column. A retired detective told us these teenagers want to go out in a blaze of glory and get their names in the news. This encourages other unwell young men to do the same. Don’t say their names!
    —Perry & Kasey Floyd / Albuquerque, N.M.

Peterson’s column reminded me of how David prays the “both and” in Psalm 40: “Evils have encompassed me” and “my iniquities have overtaken me.” I thank God that even when I can’t tell where my sin starts and ­others’ sins end, the solution is the same: “Be pleased, O Lord, to deliver me!”
    —Abigail Wallace / Burlington, Wis.

Clarification

United Airlines paid a $10 million predelivery deposit to Archer Aviation for 100 air taxis (“Skipping the expressway,” Sept. 10, p. 68).

Correction

The Wisconsin Supreme Court ruled 4-3 in July that parents could not use pseudonyms while suing a school district over its transgender student policies (“Parental pushback,” Sept. 24, p. 61).
