In response to the letter regarding animal cruelty ("Eat more plants," June 4), I would like to clarify one important thing: There is no such thing as humanely produced animal products or humane slaughter. It is a misnomer by animal producers to relieve the guilt consumers feel when buying meat, eggs or dairy. All animals, no matter how the conditions are labeled (meat-free, organic, cage-free, free-range, etc.) suffer in food production as all end up at the same slaughterhouses and all feel the fear and panic of impending death.

I agree with your editorial premise and President Barack Obama that the U.S. military needs to intervene in Iraq to protect U.S. personnel and prevent ISIS from the genocidal mass murder of 40,000 Yazidis trapped on Mount Sinjar ( "Turning point in Iraq," Aug. 8). What I do not understand is President Obama's stunning silence and lack of concern over the tens of thousands of Christians whom ISIS has tortured and murdered during their killing spree over the past few months. The Sun's editorial makes no mention of Christians who were and still are being murdered.

In the summer of 2007, then-Sen. Barack Obama was asked if he was worried that his proposed withdrawal from Iraq would result in ethnic cleansing or even genocide. He scoffed at the premise. "By that argument you would have 300,000 troops in the Congo right now -- where millions have been slaughtered as a consequence of ethnic strife -- which we haven't done," he told the Associated Press. "We would be deploying unilaterally and occupying the Sudan, which we haven't done.

"Fourteen years in the NFL," Webster Slaughter was saying after practice yesterday, "and a hit has never left me on the ground."Not once?"Not one time," he said with a smile. "I've always popped right back up."How could that be? How could a smallish, darting receiver such as Slaughter, who weighed 163 pounds when his career started, play this long without getting injured?"Hold on, it's not that I haven't been hurt," he said. "I tore up my knee in '94. Broke my arm in '88. Tore my hamstrings.

After months of hesitation, President Barack Obama has authorized the use of U.S. military force, including limited airstrikes, against Islamic militants in Iraq who in recent months have overrun large parts of the country and now threaten the northern city of Erbil as well as tens of thousands of Iraqi civilians trapped atop a barren mountain where they sought refuge after fleeing their homes. Up to now Mr. Obama has gone out of his way to avoid American involvement in the multiple conflicts roiling the region, including the bitter civil war in Syria that has claimed more than 140,000 lives and given rise to a radical extremist group, the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, that now controls large swaths of territory on both sides of the Syrian-Iraqi border.

When saying goodbye, weeping can come with the territory. In its own way, the party-starting Baltimore rap duo AK Slaughter knows this painfully well. At a recent cover shoot for their forthcoming and final EP, “It's Not You ... It's Us,” Emily Slaughter and Aran Keating hoped to depict the aftermath of a break-up. They wanted to truly cry for the full effect, but an onion they sliced failed to produce tears. So the two friends improvised. “So then Aran takes the onion juice and puts it against his eyeball,” Slaughter, who described the shoot as “exhausting,” said outside of the Bell Foundry performance space in Station North last week.

I am running out of words. Some crackpot who couldn't get a date stabs and shoots his way across the Southern California college town of Isla Vista, killing six people and wounding 13 before apparently turning his gun on himself. This happened Friday night. And what shall I say about that? I mean, I know how this goes. We all do. Weren't you sort of expecting it when the father of one of the Isla Vista victims blamed his son's death on the NRA? Would you really be stunned if the NRA countered that none of this would have happened had there been more guns in Isla Vista?

Articles like "Happy animals, local meat" (Feb. 19) make me angry in their attempt to paint animals from non-factory farm conditions as happy and their treatment as humane. All animals go to the same slaughterhouses, and I can assure you they are neither. They use the word "slaughter" as if it is no big deal to the animal so the reader will feel guilt-free about buying these food-animals as if they are somehow helping them. They aren't. They are consuming the flesh of an animal that has panicked at knowing they are next on the kill line.

Obamacare = Prenatal and Mammogram Screenings for YOUNG MEN - FINALLY! Hopefully, you now understand why I have devoted about a dozen of my Sunday columns to the train wreck widely known as Obamacare. From the beginning, this mega combination of many poor (and a few good) ideas was destined to be problematic in the real world of a market economy. Herewith my indictments. •Scope: Prior to Obamacare, approximately 15 percent of Americans were either under-insured or lacked health insurance.

In 2003, I served as a senior military officer at Camp Ashraf, Iraq. In keeping with my responsibility as an oath-bound Army officer and under the Geneva Convention, I made a solemn promise to the group of 3,000 Iranian dissidents living there. I assumed U.S. Army responsibility for the security of these people, who were living in fear of being hunted by the Iranian regime and its allied Shiia death squads in Iraq. Initially considered "terrorists," the dissidents were detained, disarmed, confined, subjected to military intelligence and FBI screening and ultimately guaranteed protected persons status under the Geneva Convention.
