Re "Experts defend gay parenting," April 6 With more than 40 years of experience in education as a teacher, school director, principal and headmaster, I find Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia's concern that the children of same-sex couples may suffer harm to be, at best, ignorant. The children I've dealt with who were the product of same-sex relationships were healthy both physically and emotionally. Their parents were concerned and proactive with regard to their children's development, and there was no discernible difference between their level of dedication and that of their heterosexual counterparts.

Re "Wisconsin Gov. Walker overcomes recall effort," June 6 The major victory for taxpayers in Wisconsin demonstrates that voters, at least in that state, have awakened to take action against the public employee unions that are bleeding the government of taxpayer money thanks to generous wages, retirements and perks. Republican Gov. Scott Walker's win was also a great victory for common sense and for the various"tea party " groups that donated and collected money for the governor and sent volunteers from all over the country to make calls, knock on doors, attend rallies and speak to the people.

Re "Due South of Funny for Kids," May 3. Howard Karlitz, like most critics, is missing the point. The show is not an attack on what he calls "the collective spirit of childhood innocence"--it is aimed entirely at adults and is an attack-by-parody precisely on those adults (court jesters were always trusted with delivering the most difficult messages), ultimately in defense of childhood innocence. The show airs 10 p.m., midnight and 1 a.m. No school-age children should be up at such hours; if they are, blame their parents, not the show.

Re "School Vouchers Win Backing of High Court," June 28: Perhaps it is time to remind those whose pro-voucher rhetoric is the loudest that, by and large, it has been a free and public school system that has educated the great majority of individuals who have built this country into what it is, the greatest nation on Earth. Although educational performance seems to be of prime consideration in the voucher movement, one need not be reminded that schools serve an even higher purpose, that of socializing young people of different cultures, economic backgrounds and ethnic and religious persuasions.

President Clinton's effort to establish national education standards to ensure that American schoolchildren master fundamental skills has drawn mixed reaction from California educators and parents. The testing plan is the centerpiece of the Clinton administration's education reform agenda. It calls for uniform tests in reading for all fourth-graders and in math for eighth-graders. The plan has won support from 15 major school districts, including Los Angeles Unified, New York City and Chicago.

In 1967, and now Re "A blunt push for peace," May 20 In his speech explicitly stating America's friendship with Israel and our commitment to its security, President Obama urged the Israelis to return to their 1967 borders as a means of securing peace. That would include relinquishing the Golan Heights, perhaps allowing Syria to resume shelling farms and homes in northern Israel (as was the case in 1967). It would also include giving up East Jerusalem and access to the Western Wall, the Jewish state's holiest site.

Coddling the rich Re "Buffett's tax argument riles Republicans," Aug. 17 Warren Buffett may the one person in America who cannot be accused of political posturing when he calls out Congress for coddling our nation's wealthiest citizens. It is common sense that revenue could be increased significantly by closing the tax loopholes for the mega-rich. The Berkshire Hathaway chairman backs up his argument with facts that are difficult to dispute. Laughably, the harshest rebuttal from Republicans comes from a wealthy investor who suggests Buffett may have a sinister agenda to thwart his fellow billionaires.
