In response to those who complain that President George W. Bushought to be tried for war crimes, I guess that means it is OK to bomb civilians using drones — or are you also ready to put President Barack Obama on trial?

As for Sen. Barbara Mikulski who has been in the U.S. Senate for what seems like forever, why did she wait until now to try and pass a bill requiring equal pay for women knowing she did not have the votes? ("Equal pay, equal work," June 7). Why didn't she bring it up when Democrats held a majority in Congress a few years back, and why are federal employees excluded from the law?

Go ahead and post the pay from President Obama's staff members and see if they are all paid equally.
