As a retired FBI special agent and former member of the FBI Agents Association, I agree that July 5, 2016, was a pivotal day. But it was during the Obama administration that the politicization of our beloved FBI began to take huge leaps.
—Tony Sandoval / Ranchos de Taos, N.M.
Emma Freire’s article provides some of the best investigative reporting and presentation of objective facts I have read in any news magazine, ever. Thank you for the courageous decision to feature this exposé on the cover.
—Tom Hovsepian / Lahaina, Hawaii
Sadly, I have unsubscribed to your magazine. Lately, it has become an echo chamber of a certain political ideology. In the Jan. 28 issue, the story about the FBI and several other articles could have been on any right-wing website.
—Mike Richardson / Tequesta, Fla.
I am a retired pharmacist, and Ashley Vaughan expressed my concern about the overuse of medications and a lack of using a holistic approach to mental illness. Rarely did I see practitioners address the body, mind, and spirit.
—Jim Bates / Marshall, Texas
As a psychiatrist for 33 years, I’m dismayed you published this one-sided article. Many Christians who are already suspicious of psychiatry will not seek help from us after reading it. Psychotropic meds are a blessing, though, like every medication, they carry risks.
—Nancy B. Graham / Richmond, Ky.
Reading Vaughan’s article was like looking in a mirror and seeing my own experiences from 41 years as a psychologist reflected back at me. She concluded where I landed after years of lonely struggle: Treatment has to include the care of the soul.
—Natalyn Joyner / Edgecliff Village, Texas
We need to address the root causes of anxiety and expect complete healing rather than redefining our identities as people who have a “chemical imbalance.” Thanks, Ashley Vaughan, for sharing your experience.
—Heather Merrill / Littleton, Colo.
Dispensing death at the corner drugstore
We are writing a letter to our local CVS and are referring to your article as the reason we’re transferring our prescriptions to a pharmacy that will never carry abortion drugs.
—Kris and Steve Hart / Billings, Mont.
Battle at the bottom of the sea
It’s hypocritical to push for battery production with an unwillingness to get what it takes from our own land while pillaging places like Congo. It’s a lie that electric vehicles are “green” because the damage is being done elsewhere that is out of sight.
—Bill Miller / Winston-Salem, N.C.
A Man Called Otto
A little girl in the movie uses the Lord’s name in vain, and to me, this is as offensive as the “progressive platitudes” we had to endure while watching it.
—Lynne LaHood / Surprise, Ariz.
Tim Giago founded The Lakota Times, the first independently owned Native American newspaper in the U.S. (“2022 Departures,” Jan. 14, p. 104).
Indicted FTX founder Sam Bankman-Fried was released on bail (“FTX+ESG=SOS,” Feb. 11, p. 40).
Eid al-Adha, according to Islamic belief, commemorates Abraham’s willingness to sacrifice his son Ishmael (“Weighing sacrificial rites,” Feb. 11, p. 69).
Bruderhof communities exist in seven countries, including the United States (“Cultivating community,” Feb. 25, p. 45).
