Letters received in past week: 126

What's on readers' minds: The state's budget crisis was the hottest topic in the past week's Mailbag, with 18 readers submitting letters on the Legislature's efforts to resolve an $860 million deficit. Of those letters, seven expressed support for a state sales tax, while two weighed in against such a move. We received 11 letters on the Lane County Budget Committee's vote to raise the pay of commissioners by 31 percent - all of them in opposition to the increase. We also got eight letters responding to a June 5 letter by Mark F. Oldham calling for a campaign against "hate radio," and five each on the Bush administration's report on global warming and the $8.5 billion shortfall in the Oregon Public Employees Retirement System.
