The missing Mr. Rubio

Your coverage of President Obama's speech was interesting. There was lots of praise from the state's Democrats and only a short comment from our lone Republican congressman ("Obama outlines ambitious agenda for second term," Feb. 13).

My paper, however, must have been missing a page because I was unable to find any mention of the Republican response ("Rubio calls for Medicare changes, balanced-budget amendment," Feb. 13).

Did it not happen, or are you just intentionally ignoring Mr. Rubio?

    Iran deal falls woefully short

    "Good enough" is not an acceptable alternative when it comes to making a nuclear deal with Iran, a government that consistently urges for "death to America and Israel" ("A 'good enough' deal," July 27). There are far too many questions left in this deal for Congress to accept it at this point in...
