Dan Rodricks makes a good argument for the danger in "stand your ground" laws ("What we all lose with 'stand your ground,'" July 16). But the one question not asked and answered to my satisfaction is why does stand your ground not apply to Trayvon Martin? Did he not stand his ground? And what did he get for that? A bullet. Stand your ground laws will only allow legal warfare to take place on our streets. And it should not be part of a civilized society. Raymond Hoff, Columbia

If you had told me in 2000 that I could find something to admire about President George W. Bush, I would have been astounded. Yet in 2003, when he traveled in secret to Iraq to share Thanksgiving dinner with the soldiers in the war zone, I greatly admired his action. At the time, there wasn't a visitor to Iraq with more of a target on his back. He was not only absent from his own table on the holiday, he put his life in danger to do it. Now, in 2012, I am ecstatic that President Barack Obama has been re-elected.

On  his Fox News show  Monday night, Bill O'Reilly suggested using mercenaries to fight the Islamic State (ISIS) instead of U.S. ground forces, which President Obama has repeatedly vowed not to deploy. The use of mercenaries is as old as warfare itself. Alexander the Great used them. King George III hired German mercenaries to fight for the British in the American Revolution. Today  mercenaries go by other names, like “contractor . " The president is to be commended for assembling a coalition that includes Arab states, but why are more of  our European allies not part of it?

If the "stand your ground" laws are so bad for the country, as you say in your editorial, why is the homicide rate in Miami and other Florida cities so much less than in Baltimore ("A chance for justice," April 13). More than twice as many people, many of them black youths, are killed each year in Baltimore than in Miami. Where is the outrage? Letting only the bad guys have guns does not seem to work.

The final numbers from No. 8 Maryland's 16-11 victory over Georgetown Friday night showed that the Terps collected just four more ground balls than the host Hoyas did. But that was of little consolation to Georgetown coach Dave Urick. “We need to get tougher when it's on the ground,” he said in his post-game comments. “We need to be able to assert ourselves a little bit more.” Then again, Maryland has a habit of befuddling opponents when it comes to collecting groundballs.

WASHINGTON -- Use of the largest conventional bomb in the U.S. arsenal -- the 15,000-pound "BLU-82" -- in recent allied air attacks on Iraq is part of an intensified effort to shake enemy troop morale before the expected allied ground offensive, officials said yesterday.Warplanes began dropping the massive bomb, also known as a "daisy cutter," last week and are expected to continue during the ongoing phase of softening up Iraqi troops for the anticipated allied ground assault.The weapon is detonated a few feet above the ground and flattens everything in its large blast radius.

So much for "innocent before proven guilty"! Not only does the liberal newspaper editorial board hang people even before an arrest they also condemn an entire state for the laws enacted to protect it's citizens ("License to kill," March 23). Former Baltimore City Councilman Kenneth Harris surely would have loved to have Florida's laws protecting him just before he was murdered. Councilman Harris did everything that stupid Maryland requires; he abandoned his friend in an emergency; he offered no resistance; and he tucked his tail and ran away.

I had to read Bill Krehbrink's letter twice to figure out that he was in favor of George Zimmerman's actions in Florida ("'Stand your ground' makes Florida residents safer," March 26). He seems very concerned that Mr. Zimmerman not even be tried because he is "innocent until proven guilty. " Does he not understand that Trayvon Martin was considered "guilty until proven innocent"? Florida's laws certainly don't make it safer for young blacks wearing hoodies and carrying Skittles.

Geopolitical analysts are especially fond of quoting Edmund Burke and George Santayana on the folly of ignoring the lessons of history and the dangers of repeating the original decisions. But what's even more imprudent, and potentially fatal, is to learn the wrong lessons from history — and by avoiding the previous mistakes, plow ahead without understanding the causes of their failure. President Barack Obama is now in danger of steering a perilous course in confronting the threat of Islamic State in the Middle East (also known as ISIS or ISIL)

For once, The Sun made me laugh out loud when its editorial board opined that "the House must reopen government and raise the debt limit, and then the two sides can negotiate a federal budget" ( "Fund government, then negotiate," Oct. 7). Oh really? At that point, what incentive would Democrats have for negotiating with the Republicans on anything? The answer is "none. " What's more, The Sun knows this perfectly well but it is trying (as always) to coerce readers into believing its disingenuous rhetoric against the Republicans.

She is a strong supporter of our world-class school system, she believes in providing the best available training for police and fire personnel and she has a unique understanding of economic development.
