Your Views: Obama fails to lead, passes Syria buck to Congress

Your Views: Columnist displays vendetta in attacking Georgia Power’s plans

Re: Joan King opinion page of Aug. 27, "Opinions shouldn't deter facts."

Your Views: Most Riverside graduates go on to fields other than military

Thank you to reporter Savannah King for an excellent article on Harrison Summerour, the battalion commander of the Corps of Cadets at Riverside Military Academy. We appreciate the attention to an outstanding young man and the publicity for our school, but I must take issue with the headline of the article, "Leading future soldiers," which is inaccurate.

Your Views: King’s moving, brilliant speech 50 years ago still worth celebrating

Having taught speech communication at the University of Georgia as a young Ph.D. in that academic field, and having later served as a speech coach for decades, I welcome the widespread celebration of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech, given 50 years ago on Wednesday, Aug. 28.
