An employee owes loyalty to his employer. If he cannot be loyal because he disagrees with company policy, then he should resign. And I cannot but wonder what The Sun would do if one of its reporters or editorial writers publicly criticized and condemned The Sun as biased in its news reports or charged it with publishing erroneous editorials.

World finally shows backing for Bush?
We have apparently been misinformed as to President Bush's standing in the international community.
I read in Wednesday's Sun that his re-election bid has been endorsed by the leaders of two bastions of democracy: Russia ("Birds-of-a-feather department," editorial, Oct. 20) and Iran ("Bush receives endorsement from Iran, says `no thanks,'" Oct. 20).

Pornography still demeans women
I read with great sadness the article "Red Light Specials" (Oct. 18).
No matter how sexually explicit material is packaged - in a Hustler magazine, a documentary on a porn movie, a racy Harlequin romance, or an artistically presented "coffee-table" book of erotica - it is still pornography.
And pornography is and always will be degrading to the human person and to the sanctity of the sexual act, as it treats persons endowed with dignity as mere sex objects - especially women. And as many men will (privately) attest, it can be very addictive.
The idea that it's OK for "mature" audiences is a silly rationalization; enjoying it is inherently immature.
I consider the fact that pornography is becoming more "mainstream" a sign not of progress but rather of deep regression in our society.
