I would like to know what knowledge Amy Fritz has that Randy Thomas hunts for "ego satisfaction."

On what facts does she base her statement "killing animals for sport hasn't been accepted by most people for quite a while?"

Do she and Ivan realize that when game is bagged in Africa and many other countries and states, the meat from the animal is not left to rot in the field, but processed and taken to shelters, orphanages, etc.?

Game that hangs on Randy's, and many other hunters', walls, was hunted legally and provided jobs and food for hundreds. I so much more enjoy viewing wall-mounted game then seeing the animals and birds in local zoos, spending their lives in cages.

Ivan, how do you feel about a cow, pig, chicken or turkey being killed? They have no recourse to defend themselves. Do you fish? How do you feel about people who lure a fish to swallow a hook, tear out its flesh and slit it open with a knife?

I am going to enjoy deep fried wild turkey for Thanksgiving dinner. Do the turkeys that will be on other tables have any less right to life?

Shame on people who write nasty letters about what they know so little.

Should graduations return to the Grape Bowl?

Lodi Unified leaders are moving Lodi and Tokay high school graduations from the Grape Bowl to the Spanos Center at UOP in Stockton. They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl. But others say graduations at the Grape Bowl are an important Lodi tradition, and one reason many supported renovating the stadium. What do you think?
