Isn't it odd that the entire world knows about Michael Brown, the unarmed teenager who was killed by a white police officer on August 9 yet nobody seems to know anything about Dillon Taylor, the young, unarmed man who was shot to death by a police officer in Salt Lake City just two days later on August 11. Please, we need to stop the incessant "black on black," "black on white," or "white on black" useless, inflammatory rhetoric. Two young unarmed men lost their lives this month.

Recently back from a trip to the Caribbean, Jeannie Schwartz and John Macci still had the exotic scent of orchids and plumeria lingering in their imaginations when they stepped out their back door to take in the familiar sight of their own backyard. An immaculate, newly finished stone and concrete patio and in-ground pool greeted them. But the project they had worked so hard on now seemed drab compared to the sights they had just enjoyed. Schwartz and Macci knew something more was needed to make their backyard equal to the lush tropical locales from their travels.

I was saddened but not surprised to read of the proposal to house immigrant children in the old Social Security office building downtown ( "Feds scrap plan for immigrant shelter at Metro West," June 11). Where were such feelings of humanity and charity, where were such acts of compassion or proposals on the table, after the ruthless bulldozing of an entire homeless community under the Jones Falls in 2013 - an act that is set to be repeated? We should first and foremost be caring for our own legal Maryland citizens.

The Baltimore Sun's editorial, " Putin's dubious offer (Sept. 10), missed a key question. What did President Barack Obama give up in order for Russian President Vladimir Putin to offer a lifeline for the president's Syrian policy? Surely, Mr. Putin did not make this offer out of the goodness of his heart. Will the American people ever be privy to that information? Joan Trush, Kingsville
