I have never been prouder to be an atheist as when I read that letter. Terri hit the nail on the head, public education is a joke and only ment for the next generation of retail salespersons and restaurant staff.

I and the other home-schooling parents do not let our children Dumpster-dive for a free, generally worthless and inferior public school education. Dumpster-dive? Wow. To think I agreed with the first half of your letter. Keep patting yourself on the back and looking down on those that, gasp, cannot stay home to school their children. Not everyone is as fortunate as you, but that certainly does not make them less a parent or their children less mature or intelligent.

Re: “Love-Hate Mail

I am sick and fed up with these people cutting down a new convention center for Nashville. Do they not realize that with this new center will come more money for Davidson county and surrounding counties with all the businesses coming to have conventions here. Also do they not understand that the NCAA Final Four Basketball games are not played here that they could fine the city and county. As the old saying goes, to make money you have to spend money. They could always go up on your property taxes again to pay for this lost!

From your own article about possibly the best and worst named band ever... "Both Allin and AC mastermind Seth Putnam mine much of the same territory to fan the flames of controversy—misogyny, homophobia, racism—but in Putnam's case, each subject is pushed to such ridiculous extremes that one couldn't possibly take him seriously...Musically there isn't much to take seriously either. " hmmmm....let's see...you imply that you think it sucks so you decided to write about it? i don't get it.

Re: “Love-Hate Mail

As an alumnus of Hillsboro High from the class of 1970, I am saddened to hear that several people feel that the current principal has caused the cultural and curricular quality at Hillsboro to plummit. I was fortunate to attend when Taylor Hagan had replaced Hale Harris as principal. The school at that time already had top notch academic departments which improved even more so under Hagan's administration. I also credit Hagan with showing a greater regard for students' and teachers' civil liberties than his predecessors did while maintaining and even upgrading the already high quality of their academic departments. Under Hagan's administration, many of the History teachers tried to be more inclusive of minority contributions to U.S. History (a fore runner of multi-culturalism). Hagan was under a lot of pressure from conservatives and white supremists who did not like the major changes that he helped promote to provide more inclusiveness and scholarship. He defended my rights to take part in peaceful antiwar protests and liberalized the dress code. We also had teachers who were very strong in protecting the Bill of Rights. If Hagan is still alive, I sorely miss him. I am sorry to hear it if that has changed any since my graduation in 1970.

Re: “Love-Hate Mail

Re: Don & Roxie's "Business is Shot" As a concealed carry permit holder I will gladly patronize restaurants that respect my rights and understand that I'm not carrying to intimidate anyone, but rather to protect myself and other law abiding citizens. Thousands of your fellow Tennesseans have permits, so it is likely that you are near, even interacting with, a permit holder almost every day. Will you allow your unreasoning and unreasonable fear of guns to keep you from going about your daily life? Perhaps you should shift your line of thought to being thankful that some of your fellow citizens are ready and able to help you in the event you are confronted by criminal elements.

Re: “Love-Hate Mail

Our daily Newspaper is gone down. I can't believe their sports reporters did not cover the SEC Basketball tournment and John Glennon the great hockey writer not being on the road. Memphis commerical appeal beat reporter for the NBA team there is on the road and smaller papers covered the SEC Basketball tournment. What is next Jim Wyatt the great beat reporter for the Titans not being on the road with the Titans? Other Gannett papers send their sports people on the road. What was once a great newspaper is now a bad newspaper. Shame on you Tennessean and shame on the Scene for not doing a story about this. Sherman Novoson

Re: “Love-Hate Mail

I am the wife of a soldier deployed in Iraq right now. To join the military in hopes of money for your family is a understandable goal but when you sign the papers you also sign for your country. I miss my husband very much. We were only married 3 months when he was deployed and though I know he misses me I would never want him to desert our country for me. It is cowardly and dishonoring to our country that this women will cry and explain that she was home-sick as the reason for deserting. To her I suck it up and get over it because you made the decision to join and were stupid to think you could earn money and not really do anything to earn it. I am sorry if I come off as heartless but it is stupid to me that she thinks she deserves anything. I give her no respect because my husband is there now and he sees the same things as she did and not once has he ever mentioned deserted. He is honorable the men and women who stay over there are honorable. Not this women no matter what her reason. You do not desert.

Re: “Love-Hate Mail

As a firm believer in serving in the military, I believe that it is such a small price to pay for the lives of loved ones all over the world. Serving tells your family that you are willing to do anything (including dying) for their safety and security. Far to often this is left to a few brave men and women to fend for us all. I believe that all Americans should be required to serve at least two years. If you wish to move to America and enjoy life here, show us. Join our military; here you can learn our culture, our language, while helping us all understand yours. I believe that dissertation equals deportation. Pick a country; Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan, North Korea, etc., we'll help you get there. It is true this is still a all volunteer military and all soldiers know that war is always a possibility. If you joined for any other reason then to protect your loved ones; please pick a country. Any members of the news media that has failed to serve and wishes to criticize our soldiers in uniform; PLEASE PICK A COUNTRY. Kevin Elizabethtown, Kentucky

Instead of complaining or griping about stories written in the Scene, I encourage all of you (as well as myself) to submit stories for publication. Does anyone know if the Scence accepts such stories? (Regardless of payment or not I am interested!)

Re: “Love-Hate Mail

I don't pay too much attention to the idiots on Fox or the idiots on MSNBC. I do pay attention when someone says they are going to do something and don't. So, when Mr. Obama signed the stimulas bill with the 9,000 + earmarks he blew a great opportunity to show America he really is different. "No more earmrks" he said so many times during his campaign. I voted for him because I thought maybe, just maybe, this guy will do what he says. But again it's politics as usuaul. I'll bet your readers won't see a satirical cartoon about it either.

Re: “Love-Hate Mail

To those of you who are so fearful of the law-abiding carrying a concealed weapon in a park: How do you get TO the park? On the way, you are surrounded by law-abiding citizens carrying concealed weapons. In fact about one in every twenty has a concealed carry license, according to recent newspaper articles. If these people aren't causing you a daily problem outside a park, why should the same people cause a problem just because you are inside a park? If you do not wish to protect yourself, that is your prerogative. Why not let others have the freedom to make that choice for themselves?
