Peter Weyrich’s commentary blasting the credibility of SpaceX and Elon Musk (“Government must come clean about SpaceX,” Web, Jan. 18), is a piece worthy of being published in The New York Times or The Washington Post.

While a presidential straitjacket is being designed by these highly educated and politicized do-gooders, we might consider prescribing a psychotropic drug for them, one designed to ease anxiety and panic.
In the recent Washington Times news article (“American-born children of immigrants proving fruitful recruiting ground for jihad in U.S., Web) it would have been interesting if the Department of Homeland Security would have broken down the statistic that “75 percent of terrorists convicted in the U.S. are foreign born” to include ethnic origin and citizenship.

Unfortunately we are doing something similar with chronic disease.
