He was born into freedom in Pusan, South Korea, 60 years ago. Still, Jong C. Jang of Marriottsville spent much of his boyhood hearing his father, Ok Kyun Jang, rhapsodize about growing up in a place about 350 miles to the north. Families were close-knit in the mountainous region around Pyongyang , now the capital of North Korea, Ok Kyun Jang said. Life was stable and opportunity abounded. But that was before 1950, when a Communist army invaded the South, driving hundreds of thousands from their homes and helping give rise to one of the world's most harshly repressive dictatorships.

I found it quite telling that The Sun focused on the fact that the Democratic primary for governor is far from decided in your, "A three-way race" (Feb. 16) even though the same holds true for the Republican primary! After all, what difference does it make because a Republican has about as much chance of being elected as The Sun does of being a fair and balanced paper!

The title of the article describing the Congressional Budget Office's analysis of Obamacare should not have been, "Health law will cover 13M in '14" (Feb. 5), but should have been, "Obama one more step toward socialistic state. " Adding more people to subsidized coverage while reducing the incentive for people to work is just a form of income redistribution. But as I learned in reading "Rules for Radicals," you don't have to be honest in telling people what your goals are, just do it.

Regarding your recent editorial on political activity by tax-exempt nonprofit groups, you once again make no mention of philanthropist George Soros' activities or President Barack Obama's Organizing for America group ( "Reining in secret money," Dec. 3). Meanwhile, of course, we have to let "traditional election-related activities such as voter registration drives and get-out-the-vote campaigns" continue, since they have a Democratic, liberal and progressive thrust for the most part.
