N&O editorial

Martinez sez going to church is the answer

Guns don't kill people, evil does:

Who knows whether a pastor or parishioner might have provided the emotional and moral anchor Adam Lanza lacked? Who knows whether regular church attendance could have provided the spiritual bond and marital counseling that would have kept Lanza’s mother and father together and given him a more stable family structure where he felt secure and loved?

And who knows why the N&O continues to give column space to someone who will use whatever tool (in this case religion) to prop up flawed Conservative ideology? A balanced article would have included a warning that not all churches are positive reinforcers:

Martinez spews garbage about veterans and PTSD

I can't believe the N&O actually printed this mess:

Not all veterans are created equally. Combat vets are special, and the burdens they're forced to bear deserve priority status.

That's why I was disheartened to see the Department of Veterans Affairs significantly relax the requirements for a veteran to receive benefits for post traumatic stress disorder, or PTSD. The change was made without much fanfare or discussion earlier this month.

Without much discussion? Are you really that dense, or are you putting on an act? Veterans have been fighting for this change for decades, and entire libraries can be stocked with the testimony and Q&A's from Congressional sub-committees and Federal lawsuits.
