Dear Editor, The United States is in an unparalleled economic crisis. The jobless rate keeps going up daily with no end in sight. Our newly-elected president recently signed into law a bill banning the torture of prisoners of war. While on the other hand, the federal government is using our tax dollars to torture the unborn with partial birth abortions. God is not and will not be mocked. Whatsoever a man sows, so shall he reap. I am talking about the God of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Billy Graham and M. Wendell Anderson.

Dear Editor, You think we have come far and then things like this happen - Jena 6, rape, torture in West Virginia. What have we come to, what have I done wrong? Some would say just to be born black. Is it a crime? Before you judge me, look at my heart first, before you judge me on the outside. Doug Walker Danville

Dear Editor: President Bush has nominated Alberto Gonzales to replace John Ashcroft as attorney general. Gonzales is being questioned closely in the Senate about his justification of torture of persons imprisoned on suspicion of terrorism. In a memo to Bush in January 2002, he wrote that the war on terrorism rendered the Geneva Convention's prohibitions on torture "obsolete" and "quaint. " He played a large role in enabling the torture of prisoners in Abu Ghraib, Guantanamo, and many secret CIA detention centers.
