Even before the jet lag had worn off after a visit to Kandahar earlier this year, I received a disturbing e-mail from a colleague there. An improvised explosive device had detonated outside the home of one of the members of the cooperative I help run. It had apparently been placed to target a convoy in which the district chief of police was traveling. Unharmed but outraged, the police chief ordered his subordinates to find out who owned the house.

The case for targeting Target Re "MoveOn misses the mark," Editorial, Aug. 19 Although The Times takes a firm stand advocating gay marriage, your follow-through is weak. Your words are only words, as welcome they might be. Merely publishing opinions is not action. Nationwide, homosexuals are discriminated against by religious institutions, schools, universities, in the workplace and in many other settings. Discrimination is an action, not just talk, and these actions that hurt and diminish gay citizens can be reduced only by opposition in action.
