Hotel California

I was infuriated after reading about the town of El Cajon, Calif. It is unfair and unjust for the good work of the mayor and the efforts of townspeople to have a town that meets the needs of its citizens trashed by the state’s attorney general.
    —Pauline Blanka / Nicholasville, Ky.

Bill Wells gives the lie to the claim that liberals show more concern about the poor than conservatives. In liberal-run areas, the poor proliferate. And when problems get out of hand, liberals often pass the poor off to better-run conservative locations.
    —Stephen Leonard / Vidalia, Ga.

Safe delivery

I appreciate WORLD’s ­coverage of the complex ­situation involving safe haven laws and baby boxes, helping us round out our grasp of this pro-life battle. Hopefully, this article will provoke some progress toward cooperation.
    —Antonio Valdes-Dapena / Spotsylvania, Va.

Weighing reparations

If you are looking for an expensive way to feel better about a past wrong, then continue looking at reparations. But the government should instead fund nonprofits effective at training and ministering to people, which gets at the root causes of joblessness, homelessness, and addiction.
    —Jonathan Teune / Lake Geneva, Wis.

The younger prince

Spare? What an attention-­seeking, juvenile pile of junk.
    —Angie Sansoterra  / Rockford, Mich.

The “Spare” was born into an upper-crust world of 1 percenters who expect certain behavior, decorum, and a stiff upper lip. Instead, he whines about his life. I cannot gin up any sympathy for him, or Meghan, considering the lives that most people in the world are living.
    —Michael Small / Wheelwright, Mass.

The reviewer of Spare ­concludes, “By the end, the reader can only hope [Prince] Harry has found the peace and happiness he so desperately craves.” The only hope for Harry, or anyone else for that matter, is to surrender to the Lord Jesus Christ for the peace that passes all understanding.
    —Inell B. deMontmorency / Boiling Springs, S.C.

Music is good medicine

Kim Henderson’s article spoke to my heart. What a gift Angi Bemiss is to the patients and hospital staff with her harp and hands. Music of the angels here on earth.
    —Darla Dykstra / Kansas City, Mo.

A fair fight?

Thank you for such a clear explanation of the war we are in. Those who think otherwise are deceived, which is to be expected of the worldly since the god of this world has blinded their eyes. But for Christians to deny this fact shows just how deep the deception runs.
    —Jesse Barnhart / Florissant, Mo.

The “bad guys” often don’t have a coherent argument for their positions, so their only option is to silence debate. Hence, the cancel culture. Back in the hippie days, their relentless mantra was “Free speech!” You never hear that concept from the left anymore.
    —Bruce McKechnie / Honey Brook, Pa.

Death of a salesman

After I read Andrée Seu Peterson’s column about her father, my grandmother told me a story about my father and Andrée’s father: When my father was a small boy, he would stand at the end of the pew in church. Mrs. Peterson’s father, who sat up front, would bop my father on the head with his Bible walking up and give him a dollar on his way back.
    —Calvin Hughes, age 15 / Fuquay-Varina, N.C.
