Your Aug. 7 editorial "Now. Wisconsin" ends: "Americans are left to ponder the consequences of a fatal equation: Hatred and craziness plus guns equal inevitable tragedy."
This is an excellent point that all Americans should consider. However, besides the answer that you imply, there is a second solution.
We should refocus our efforts to identify the few who display hatred and craziness, rather than taking millions of guns away from people whose sole intent is to protect themselves and their families.
Super-PAC donors should aid charities
Thomas L. Friedman's Aug. 4 op-ed column, "Trade-off looms: Nursing homes or nursing the world," about charitable organizations that lack funds to meet the increasing needs of the poor, ill, and aging, was disturbing.
But there is a simple answer: Have all the wealthy donors to super-political action committees contribute like amounts to a super-PAC to aid charities.
Better yet, divert all the political TV advertising money to charities, so we don't have to listen to the innuendoes and lies told by both parties.

High-quality cars will sell themselves.
Which candidate is for middle-class?
I couldn't agree more with the writer of a July 26 Readers' Forum letter about how recent events involving the presidential candidates show which one truly represents working-class America ("Events mark differences.").
While one candidate campaigns on explaining the hypocrisy of the current administration and its woeful ineffectiveness, the other candidate uses the perks and power of his office to spend an inordinate amount of time jetting to elitist, five and six-digit fund-raisers on the East and West coasts. The economy flounders, the debt soars, and the middle class continues to suffer.
Yes, it is obvious.
