Thank you for enunciating my thoughts exactly in your editorial "Death by drone" (March 9). I would think a vast majority of the people voted for Barack Obama as a repudiation of the disastrous Bush-Cheney administration. But President Obama, like his predecessor, is trying to usurp power I would argue rests with the legislative branch. I would never have guessed that Attorney General Eric Holder would make some convoluted but lame excuse for denying U.S. citizens due process. Mr. Holder at his press conference gave a great impersonation of Dick Cheney.

It has been 50 years this month since the Cuban missile crisis, but I remember the terror of it. We were hours away from six missiles, each with the strength of eighty Hiroshima bombs, being launched against the eastern seaboard before Nikita Khrushchev called them back to Russia. Jack Kennedy was our President, and we will evermore be grateful for his handling of it. If there were ever again a crisis of such magnitude, which of the two presidential candidates would we want to make decisions: Barack Obama, who seems to carefully deliberate in his decision making ("leading from behind")

One of President Barack Obama's favorite quotes - which is attributed to Albert Einstein - wisely reminds us, "Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results." Some on the far left and some in the media prove Einstein's point on a daily or weekly basis with their continuous assaults against former Vice President Dick Cheney and his single-minded desire to protect our nation from nuclear, biological or chemical attack at the hands of terrorists. The latest onslaught from the left against Mr. Cheney has come because he dares to vocalize that Central Intelligence Agency interrogators actually protected our nation from additional terrorist attacks.

WASHINGTON -- White House reporters pounced on White House press secretary Scott McClellan like jackals circling a wounded antelope, teeth bared. "Scott, do you think that the shooting accident involving the vice president on Saturday should have been disclosed to the public on Saturday?" "Isn't there a public disclosure requirement that should have kicked in immediately?" "But let's just be clear here. The vice president of the United States accidentally shoots a man and he feels that it's appropriate for a ranch owner who witnessed this to tell the local ... newspaper, and not the White House press corps at large, or notify the public in a national way?"

CHEYENNE, Wyo. - In 1978, Dick Cheney was crisscrossing Wyoming's grand vistas in search of votes. He was campaigning to become Wyoming's sole member of the U.S. House of Representatives, and his crisp style reflected his most recent experience in Washington, D.C., as chief of staff to President Gerald Ford. With Sens. Alan K. Simpson and Malcolm Wallop, Cheney helped turn Wyoming into a Republican bastion. And many of the issues that shaped their campaigns in the 1970s and 1980s remain current in 2000.

NEW YORK -- The end of a Dick Cheney stump speech can be jarring. The vice president speaks quietly for 25 minutes, sounding like a professor plodding through a lecture. Then, as he politely thanks his audience, machines shoot confetti, music blares and balloons tumble from above. It's a sudden reminder that this is the campaign trail, not class time in a college auditorium. Cheney has never been described as flashy or exuberant. In 2000, George W. Bush was not seeking such traits in a lieutenant.

WASHINGTON - Seated behind a massive desk once used by World War I Gen. John "Black Jack" Pershing, Dick Cheney as secretary of defense fired generals he viewed as insubordinate or timid, pored over battle plans for Panama and the Persian Gulf, slashed weapons systems he saw as inadequate or too costly, and approved an ambitious plan for a national missile defense. Few predicted such an aggressive, heavily engaged management style from the quietly intense Republican congressman from Wyoming, the possessor of a wry smile and a love of fly fishing.

"And finally, Dick Cheney removed all doubt by having an artificial pump installed where his heart should be." Susan Reimer ("A parade of people behaving badly," July 19) reached the peak of her periodic liberal snipes with this cheap shot comment. It really reflects badly on an otherwise not-bad and fairly perceptive column. George Creel, Davidsonville

Sorry for the delay in reacting to Susan Reimer's commentary in The Baltimore Sun ("A parade of people behaving badly," July 19) but our cable was down, thus no access to the Internet. We are so fortunate to have free speech in this wonderful country of ours; but why is it necessary for one your columnists to print such blatant personal attacks in her commentary? Ms. Reimer seems to be leading the parade of people behaving badly. Her rudeness is magnified by identifying Sarah Palin as "control-freak Mama Sarah" and saying the Dick Cheney has an "artificial pump where his heart should be."

It has been a busy few weeks for those of us in the Glass House Club who keep track of the bad behavior of others. Almost before we finished shaking our heads and tsk-tsking at Al Gore's purported bad massage table behavior, we had Lindsay Lohan's bad nail polish behavior and Mel Gibson's bad telephone behavior. Anyone concerned about the coarsening of the cultural conversation has got to admit that that horse has left the barn. We are now hip-deep in I-can't-believe-anyone-would-actually- do -that.

So we may soon have ourselves a conservative Bible. Besides Fox News, I mean. This new Bible is from Conservapedia, a Web site that bills itself as a conservative alternative to the perceived liberal bias of Wikipedia, the user-edited online reference. You may judge Conservapedia's own bias by reading its definition of liberal: "someone who rejects logical and biblical standards, often for self-centered reasons. There are no coherent liberal standards; often a liberal is merely someone who craves attention, and who uses many words to say nothing."

Evidently some people were disappointed that Dick Cheney didn't receive the Nobel Peace Prize, and believe me, I sympathize - I thought Philip Roth should've gotten the literature prize instead of that grumpy Romanian lady with the severe hair - but it was Mr. Obama whom the Norwegians wanted to come visit Oslo in December and stand on the balcony of the Grand Hotel and wave to the crowd along Karl Johans Gate, and, face it, Mr. Obama is going to draw...

Best that weather forcasters err, if at all, on the side of preparedness. Dick Cheney is the nearest this administration gets to the indispensable man, and owes it to us all to pace himself accordingly. It's a crime to import New Jersey wine without a Maryland middleman -- just the lunacy the Constitutional Convention of 1787 was meant to correct. Whatever else he has done, Albert Belle always did his best.

What if Cheney is yellow? On Sept. 10, 2001, America was a strong and secure country that stood brave and firm for its laws and treaties, the ones that protect all of us, including our armed forces. The next day, according to Dick Cheney's battle plan, we turned into a nation of cowards, abandoning the red, white and blue for some kind of foul-smelling yellow flag of shame. Suddenly, some in power were screaming like frightened children: "We've been attacked! To heck with the Constitution and the Bill of Rights and foreign treaties!
