Dangerously funny

As my favorite atheist George Orwell said, “Some ideas are so stupid that only intellectuals believe them.” Or as the Apostle Paul more appropriately said, “Professing to be wise, they became fools.” The Babylon Bee has become a leader in the fight against the stupidity and foolishness of the so-called elites in this nation. May God bless the Babylon Bee.
    —Paul Perrone / Springfield, Va.

The incisive wit of the Babylon Bee is a welcome balance to the insufferable pomposity of our times. Its writers fulfill the matching mandates of Proverbs 26:4-5: “Do not answer a fool according to his folly, or you yourself will be just like him. Answer a fool according to his folly, or he will be wise in his own eyes.” Bravo, Babylon Bee!
    —David Goodin / Uniontown, Pa.

What pithy insights Seth Dillon and Lynn Vincent treated us to on the topic of satire. In a highly sophisticated way, satire exposes situational ironies that beg for change. Some situations are so un-funny, they need a dose of levity or we’d sink into despair.
    —Karen Davis / Exton, Pa.

Georgia redux

I detected a lack of balance in your article on the U.S. Senate runoff election in Georgia. You mentioned accusations about Herschel Walker by ex-girlfriends but did not mention the accusations of abuse made against Raphael Warnock by his ex-wife.
    —Melvin C. McDowell / Everett, Pa.

Your reporter, though recounting Walker’s negatives, failed to mention that Warnock’s campaign war chest was almost completely funded by donations from California and New York.
    —Stephen Leonard / Vidalia, Ga.

Playing fetch indoors

I first noticed that the woman in the photo accompanying the article appeared middle-aged. I was then surprised when I read that this new robotic technology was for “the elderly” and “seniors.” We are surrounded by people of all ages who could benefit from the Labrador Retriever. Please take that into consideration the next time you address the disabled population.
    —Amy McClish / Milwaukie, Ore.

Who is Elon Musk?

With Elon Musk’s move of Tesla and SpaceX to the Austin, Texas, area, I propose a new invention/project for him: a machine to clean up our once-­beautiful city.
    —Cheryl Irish / Bastrop, Texas

Faith in the face of evil

Whoever wrote the caution at the end of the review probably has read neither the Scriptures cover to cover nor church history. The point of Mariam Ibraheem’s book is to reveal the suffering she has endured for her faith. I would expect violence, abuse, and mutilation, even worse. The current trend is overprotection, soft on reality. We rarely shielded our children from God’s Word. Believers need to be prepared for suffering.
    —Carolyn Norris / Morgan Hill, Calif.

New and noteworthy

While the new edition of It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown by Vince Guaraldi differs from the 2018 release because, as Arsenio Orteza writes, “It contains seven more alternate takes totaling 10 more minutes,” that is not the main difference. The 2022 rerelease is “pure” while the 2018 edition is not. The reissue is sourced from the original session tapes, which were unavailable in 2018. The earlier release was sourced from the TV special and included sound effects from the program.
    —Isaac Tag / Syracuse, Utah
