Who cares what Superman scribe thinks of gay marriage?

Apparently the thought police are alive and well. How is it possible that in a country where everyone is supposed to be entitled to their opinion, a person can be judged unfit to write a comic book just because they oppose gay marriage ("Superman author choice won't fly, some fans say," Feb. 22)?

What has the one thing got to do with the other? How many people reading a Superman comic even know the author's position on gay marriage, or care?

Those who oppose gay marriage are just supposed to accept it without complaint, while those who support it are entitled to keep vilifying those who take a different view. Talk about a warped sense of entitlement.

In the America I grew up in everyone was entitled to their own opinion and people respected that right even if they didn't agree. What a sad state of affairs we've come to.

    Gun laws aren't enforced

    The people screaming for more gun control and more gun laws and all the other useless ideas should be finding out why the laws now in place are not being enforced.

    The Sun needs to drop its anti-cop agenda

    The Sun's continued drumbeat demonizing police officers is alarming and further evidenced through the entirely one-sided and dangerous editorial, "The limits of video" (July 23). It is well established that Officer Brian Encina had a right to pull over Sandra Bland, as minor a traffic offense as...

    Lives wasted in prison, with taxpayers picking up the tab

    I note that Norman O'Neal Brown was kept in prison for 24 years for a non violent drug offense ("A second chance in life," July 24). Thinking about that — I do that occasionally — it occurs to me that if it costs $50,000 a year to keep someone in prison, that would come to $1,200,000.
