Letters published: 62

What's on readers' minds: No single topic dominated Mailbag during the past week. We received 22 letters on a July 23 editorial urging the U.S. Senate to reject the nomination of Daniel Pipes to the board of directors of the U.S. Institute of Peace (most of the letters were from Arab Americans across the country who oppose the nomination because of Pipes' criticism of Islam); 18 on the U.S. occupation of Iraq and allegations that the administration misrepresented intelligence reports to justify an invasion, and nine each on the absence of an entryway ramp in the design for the new federal courthouse and a July 19 story on FOOD for Lane County's Board of Directors' decision to conduct a special audit of credit card use at the agency. Other popular topics include the Confederated Tribes of Coos Lower Umpqua and Siuslaw Indians' plans to build a casino near Florence, presidential candidate Dennis Kucinich's recent visit to Eugene, the Eugene City's Council's decision to rename Centennial Boulevard to honor Martin Luther King Jr., and the state's budget crisis.
