Sun puts fluff on the front page

U.S. citizens were advised last week of a "credible and imminent" terrorist threat, but that news didn't make the front page of The Sun and was barely covered on the last page of the front section on Sunday ("Global security alert follows prison breaks," Aug. 4).

We did, however, have the opportunity to read not one, but two, very lengthy articles about Jonathan Ogden's induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. One article made Page 1 of both the front and sports sections. Do Sun employees communicate with one another?

We were also treated to an "in depth" article covering the recent Bronycon convention in Baltimore for fans of "My Little Pony."

Mr. Ogden and Bronycon certainly deserved coverage, but not to the extent they received. The poor coverage of the recent terrorist threat serves as a reminder of why I canceled my subscription to The Sun for five years. Maybe it's time to consider doing so again.

    In its recent editorial, The Sun adopts President Barack Obama's primary argument in favor of the Iran deal — that the only choice is the deal or war ("A 'good enough' agreement," July 24). No one wants war. But the choice here is not war or no war. It is war now or war later.
