To the editor: In the Oct. 10 Opinion column, “Tragedy revives gun argument,” Mark Gibson made a false statement. He wrote, “But AR stands for ‘assault rifle.’” It actually stands for Armalite, the company that produced it.
Fire fuels multi-prong debate

To the editor: Our 35 percent corporate tax rate encourages businesses to move profits and jobs to low-tax nations. At the same time, deductions and loopholes allow major companies like GE and Apple to avoid paying taxes. Done responsibly, there could be bipartisan support for corporate tax reform.
To the editor: Regarding your editorial, “Compromise is becoming lost art.'” The late British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher said it best: "I have usually sought to avoid compromise, because it more often than not turns out to involve an abdication of principle," and "Consensus is the absence of leadership.”
