JAGged end

The "voluntary end" of the television show JAG ("Turned off," June 4) deserves more than a half-sentence mention. I have been amazed how JAG has often been summarily dismissed despite its fine cast and writers. A 10-year run is admirable anyway, but one where our military is treated respectfully is unheard-of. And, I am afraid, it will remain unheard-of in the future-except for JAG reruns on USA Network.

Honorable tribute

I was moved to tears after reading Marvin Olasky's column, "Choose the harder right" (May 28). Thank you for writing such an honorable tribute to our men and women who have sacrificed so much for freedom.

In the WORLD

Please cancel our subscription. We have become uncomfortable with the many articles that do not encourage Christians to remove themselves from the world.
-Garry Simmons ; Pequannock, N.J.

Our family's WORLD usually comes on Monday, and I and four of my younger sisters connive, scheme, and sneak to get it first. Thank you for a magazine that is enjoyable, helpful, and entirely free from the corruption of the liberal media.
-Liz Orrick; LaGrange, Ky.

A Christian leader

A recent guest speaker at my church said that the secret of Christian leadership is "red eyes, bent knees, and a broken heart." It sounds like Spc. Brett Hershey learned that on his own, as shown in his journal entries ("Fallen soldiers in a forgotten war," May 28).
