In an emotional plea, Francine Wheeler, the mother of Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting victim Ben Wheeler, asked for "common sense" at the president's weekly White House address ("Conn. mom pleads for gun control at White House," Web, April 13). But the actions Mrs. Wheeler was advocating and politicians' emotional calls to "get assault weapons off the streets" would do nothing to prevent a repeat of the tragedy of Sandy Hook.
About 90 percent of the running time of "Evil Dead" consists of finding brutal and bloody ways to kill a person. The fact that Sam Raimi's remake of his own 1981 original is going out in wide release with an R is an example of just how far our society has gone off the rails and come to accept bloodletting as entertainment.
The New York Times in "More Diagnoses of A.D.H.D. Causing Concern," published April 1, has discovered what some of us have been saying for decades: Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder diagnosis is a function of interpreting "mild [behavioral] symptoms," not pathological findings of disease.

The terrible murderer of children and teachers in Newtown, Conn., Adam Lanza, was not a member of the National Rifle Association (NRA) despite the media reports. CNN host Piers Morgan who is rabidly anti-gun, took these harmless pieces of evidence to insinuate the NRA is somehow complicit in the horrific crime.
The nation's shock over the horrific murder of 20 schoolchildren at Sandy Hook Elementary School was matched by a desire to find ways to protect all children from such a crime.
Sen. Bob Casey Jr. of Pennsylvania says the Connecticut school shootings in December caused a significant change in his position on gun laws and now favors limits on assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition magazines.
MSNBC host Rachel Maddow said new information about the school shooting in Newtown, Conn., proves that a ban on assault-type weapons, including AR-15s, is necessary.
Medical experts and advocates told a Capitol Hill forum Tuesday that Congress could close some gaping holes in the country's mental health system virtually overnight, but a key Democratic lawmaker said he didn't foresee any action on the issue in the near future.
Colorado Democratic legislators are passing a hail of new anti-gun laws that prevent the most vulnerable from defending themselves in places often targeted by rapists and mass killers. Similar bills are being rolled out by Democratic legislators in other states, headed to Congress.
