"Mailbag" Continued...

Issue: "On the rails," Oct. 9, 2010

"Scott Pilgrim vs. The World" (Aug. 28)

My wife and went to see Scott Pilgrim based on Sam Thielman's review. We were extremely disappointed. Yes, it is funny if you want to laugh at sin.

"Dropping the ball" (Aug. 28)

What a shame that the only name that stood out to Mark Bergin at the NFL Hall of Fame induction ceremony was the one not known for personal greatness, Jerry Rice. The first words of running back Emmit Smith were to "thank my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ," then he spoke passionately and articulately as he poured out honor and gratitude to all the people in his life who made him successful.
Joni Halpin; Allen, Texas

"Talk talk talk talk talk" (Aug. 14)

I liked Mindy Belz's column. Our conversation seems to be going the way of our art. In the same way that modern art offers us meaningless shapes and lines, so American conversations seem to be shallow and loose. It is encouraging that the Bible can help us to recover our communication skills.
Andrew Paulson; Apple Valley, Minn.

"Abdicating the crown" (July 31)

LeBron James, had he played in New York City, would have had to pay millions in state and city income taxes over the course of his contract. Florida has no personal income tax and as such attracts big moneymakers such as Rush Limbaugh and Tiger Woods. As the saying goes, follow the money.
Janis Vitolins; Fishers, Ind.

"The end of accomplishment" (July 31)

This column was excellent. I agree with the three reasons Janie Cheaney cited as an explanation for why we have lost the capability to put a man on the moon since 1972. The best line is, "Vision, leadership, unity, and talent are ground to dust by bureaucracy."
David Berry; Westminster, Md.

"Moments in time" (July 31)

"Moments in time" was a scorcher. I've been bothered by the idea of "incremental" for a while because I always wonder in which direction I'm heading. How far does a particular sin or bad or lazy habit move me away from the Lord, or a good work move me toward Him? I'm reminded of Paul's admonition in Philippians to "think on these things." The thought realm is where the real trouble starts.
Malcolm Powers; Ann Arbor, Mich.

I am very thankful for your magazine. It reports happenings in a factual manner without a worldly spin on it, as the liberal media do.
Robert Buri; Roseburg, Ore.

Thank you for an extremely high-quality magazine. You really bless me with your professionalism. Your graphic designer does a great job and all your articles are interesting.
Peter Davenport; Tacoma, Wash.
