MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

In response to our editorial suggesting that the new TSA policy allowing some knives on airplanes should be reversed, we had these comments:

"There's no legitimate reason to NOT allow pocket knives on a plane… 18" knitting needles are allowed and the airline union isn't complaining about that."

Another viewer wrote:

"A pencil is more dangerous. Why not ban them?"

To our editorial saying that there is still evidence that the Voting Rights Act must continue, one viewer wrote:

"The law was unconstitutional when it was passed… and is now an embarrassment to a nation… that requires all citizens to be treated equally, including those who happen to live in areas whose distant past includes horrendous practices."

Our editorial saying that the sequestration would push Alabama schools closer to the edge of a scholastic cliff brought this comment:

"Sequester? Bring it on. Obama's scare tactics have caused this ‘sky is falling' hysteria…   It is time for the spending problem and debt to come to a head and perhaps some resolution." 

And in response to our editorial suggesting that lawmakers should put gambling on the ballot and end this bingo controversy once and for all we had these responses:

"How many times must we ‘once and for all?'  Alabama has voted against gambling time and time again, and have voted gambling down."

Another viewer wrote…

"It shouldn't be up to the government OR the people. The freedom to gamble or not is an individual choice that does not infringe on the rights of others and therefore, should never be legislated, for or against."

As always, we appreciate your comments.
