Editorial: Proposed Anti-Terrorist Plans Are Un-American
Our lives were changed forever on Sept. 11. This we know.

Making Senator McCarthy Proud
The past month has seen many calls for us all to stand united in our quest to preserve democracy and freedom. One of the most trying periods in Americans history, September 2001 bound us together as a society, and called upon us to preserve, protect and defend our liberties and our way of life. Last week, therefore, it was gravely disappointing to see our nation's leadership craft an anti-terrorism package that brushes these constitutionally guaranteed liberties aside.

Letters to the Editor -- Patriotism Evokes Spectrum of Emotions
You may not believe in everything America has done. I don't think anyone blindly believes that this country is perfect. Those of us who think that way, as Julian Ledesma ("Anthem Evokes Mixed Emotion," Sept. 27) seems to, still stand and salute the flag because of what it stands for. The flag symbolizes what we would like this country to be, not what it is. Those who may agree with you still served this country as patriots and stood for the flag.
