amNewYork letters to the editor
Photos should match the story
Re Taking blunt approach, June 16: I read your article and commend you in what I found to be a good piece. I, and many I know who are too afraid to publicly admit
it, favor complete legalization. However, why the scary-looking front page? Also, why the pathetic, stereotyped loser image with the article? Why not an image of a high-powered, business-attired person? The image does not represent the educated, hard working professional who prefers cannabis over alcohol and/or simply likes to smoke to unwind after a hard day. Why write an intelligent article, and ruin it with misrepresenting images?

Dont save me on the subway
Re Tracking straphanger gripes, June 15: Missing from your list of subway annoyances are the religious proselytizers who insist on saving the souls of train riders. Those droning voices that condemn non-believers to hell have more than once sent me fleeing to another car. Ive yet, however, to encounter a transit ranter who spouts off about evolution.

Iranians should do what U.S. did
The Iranian people dont agree with the outcome of the election? What on earth could they possibly do? Easy! What the U.S. did when this occurred: Their Supreme Court must stop any process or recount and elect the most conservative candidate and move on.
