In Susan Reimer 's generally excellent column, "The end of marriage" (Sept. 24), she makes the following statement about birth control: "They either use it inconsistently, such as forgetting to take the Pill, or they choose a form that has a high failure rate, such as condoms. " I was puzzled to read this because I thought - and a quick check of the Internet confirmed - that condoms are quite reliable. Here's one of many sources I found at Planned Parenthood. Perhaps she meant it's a mistake to depend on condoms because people aren't always comfortable with them, but when they are used, they work.

Susan Reimer seems extremely misguided; her sympathy for Sgt. Robert Bales, who massacred men, women and children, is an enigma to me ("War makes you crazy, both there and here," March 26). But since these are her feelings, why is she ashamed to admit them? Geraldine Segal, Randallstown

I initially felt "way to go" when I read Susan Reimer 's column about women apologizing ( "What are women apologizing for?" June 23). However, with deeper contemplation I began to wonder if women apologize more because they are more polite. That they care about other's feelings. That our male friends are perhaps a little too brusque and quick to move on without regard to what feelings they have left behind.

I found Susan Reimer 's column about the Casey Anthony verdict extremely disappointing ("Anthony trial is over but verdict is still out," July 7). She seemed to want the worst for Casey Anthony, and I cannot understand why. I suspect the jurors in the case knew more about the details than Ms. Reimer did. She mentions Nancy Grace, who has been irresponsibly cruel in some of her broadcasts. I hope Ms. Reimer will not imitate her negative spirit in the future. Robert J. Jones, Washington, D.C.

Nora Ephron's collection of essays, "I Remember Nothing," was a memoir about aging, written while it was happening because, she explained, you never know which meal will actually be your last meal. In it, the wry and witty author and filmmaker included a list of the things she would not miss when she died - dry skin, bras, bad dinners "like the one we went to last night," Clarence Thomas and panels on "Women in Film. " And the things she would miss: among them waffles, the concept of waffles, a walk in the park, the concept of a walk in the park, fireworks, Paris, taking a bath and pie. We didn't know it at the time, but Nora Ephron was doing what she always did best - mining her own life and its mundanity to amuse the rest of us. She was battling a form of leukemia at the time, but she kept her illness to herself.

If so, Sun columnist Susan Reimer would like to hear from you.Let us know if you will try to import the traditions your mother and father made famous. ("It can be at my house, but Mom is still going to have to bake!") Or will you begin some new traditions -- ones distinctly your own.

I'm sure there is a lot of push back on Susan Reimer 's column about manly entitlement ( "#YesAllWomen live it, http://www.baltimoresun.com/news/opinion/oped/bs-ed-reimer-yes-all-women-20140528%2C0%2C7266529.column May 29). I prefer the reasonable route rather than the emotional. I would agree with her entire piece except for the last sentence: "men feel entitled to power over women. All Ms. Reimer had to do was insert the word, "some," at the beginning of the sentence and I would nod my head in agreement.

Susan Reimer 's raging is in vain. ( "Is the death of Westboro Baptist leader Fred Phelps cause for celebration?" March 21.) Pastor Fred Phelps preached a faithful gospel to this generation, and he was the soul that The Lord our God used to teach the servants of God at Westboro Baptist Church how to be faithful and so forth. Pastor Phelps has not picketed a soldier funeral since 2007. That work was done by others, and The Lord willing, we will continue to be faithful to warn you, as the hour is short.

The New Jersey high school senior who moved in with a friend after disputes with her parents and then sued them for financial support returned home Wednesday. I described this family drama in my Monday column. Rachel Canning, who left home in October, had asked a judge to require her parents to pay her Catholic high school tuition, her lawyer's fees, her college tuition and more than $650 a week in support. A judge had refused her request for immediate financial relief but had scheduled a full hearing on the matter for April.

Susan Reimer 's recent column regarding Sarah Palin was spot on and laugh-out-loud hilarious ( "Sarah Palin: the gift that keeps on giving," Nov.13). I did feel that she left out the true reason that this political and intellectual lightweight is still around, or as Ms. Reimer so eloquently puts it, is the "gift that keeps on giving. " And that reason is that she is a very, very attractive women with all the right physical attributes: great figure, pretty hair, beautiful eyes and white teeth combined with a winning smile!

I am writing in response to Susan Reimer 's column, "Adrian Peterson's version of 'Parenthood'" (Oct. 16), which borders on the reprehensible and intentionally plays on some of the Baltimore public's worst fears. First, Ms. Reimer's subtle implication that Adrian Peterson is somehow at fault for the beating death of his infant child because he was absent from the toddler's life is both illogical and offensive. Second, and more important, her use of racially-coded language, which compares athletes like Mr. Peterson to children and overly-sexed animals, relies on the kind of sophist cant that actually serves to maintain sexism and violence against children in the name of citizenship.

As I contemplate the state of my government with sadness and anger, what a treat it was to read Susan Reimer 's article on heirloom tomatoes ( "They aren't heirloom unless your grandmother gave them to you," Oct. 2). My husband and I have been relishing these gems for the past two months. Eating an heirloom tomato on fresh bread slathered with mayonnaise will bring joy to the hardest of hearts. One realizes that there is something greater out there that transcends the mundane.

"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

I was very disappointed by Susan Reimer 's recent column in which she insisted that although she "likes" Gov. Martin O'Malley, she wouldn't vote for him because "a decent guy wouldn't put his family through what it takes to be president" ( "Memo to Martin O'Malley: Please don't run for president," Aug. 19). Although Ms. Reimer's message that presidential races have become over-the-top and drawn-out is hardly an exaggeration, Governor O'Malley is not responsible for the "odious" state of electoral politics to which she refers.

Not long ago, I wrote about a law in China, home of the one-child limit, requiring the kids to attend to the financial and emotional needs of their parents. The law was put in place in part to restore China's traditional veneration of ancestors - replaced under Mao with devotion to the state - and because China has little social safety net for its enormous aging population. I took the opportunity to whine that my children, if we lived in China, would be in jail or a re-education camp by now because they don't pay as much attention to me as I want.
