READERS WRITE Blessings from a radio station Regarding the Feb. 9 Monitor Daily article " 'Calls From Home': How one Kentucky radio station connects inmates and families": This article speaks to the heart. I communicate with an inmate here in California, where I live, and we have a very inexpensive telephone calling program that is provided for a number of prisons, so he is able to call fairly frequently. I think that what that radio station in Kentucky is doing is a compassionate, kind, tender activity that is surely blessing many people. I am glad you covered this story. Thank you. KATHLEEN CRAMER Azusa, Calif. Hearing from the other side Regarding the Jan. 9 Monitor Daily article "Gun rights: Bid to federalize concealed carry puts GOP in unfamiliar territory": It is refresh- ing to come away from an article, after reading well-made arguments from people whose position is opposite my own, thinking "Well, they have a good point there!" Frustrating, mind you – it's always comforting to read articles that just reinforce one's own beliefs – and uncommon, but refreshing. CLIFF LAWSON Water Valley, Miss. Peaceful unity of the future I appreciate the balance of articles in the Jan. 15 issue of The Christian Science Monitor Weekly. The stories in Points of Progress about improve- ments in energy conservation worldwide in Bah- rain and California as well as a Progress Watch piece that details the liberating use of solar panels in Jordanian refugee camps and a Focus about remarkable converts to wind power in Wyoming are especially inspiring. Hats off to your excellent staff and reporters for finding and publishing examples of long-range social, economic, and environmental good. Such articles hold promise for the peaceful unity of our future together. RUTH PLUM Wilmington, N.C.
