Blood donor laws too restrictive
In 1983, near the apex of the AIDS crisis, it made sense to ban gay men from donating blood to the nation's supply. HIV, the virus that causes AIDS, can be transmitted through blood.

Higher premiums coming?
An Indiana couple who wrote to me a few weeks ago has experienced the ups and downs of Obama­care, and they wanted me to know about one downside they now face - a monthly premium of $836.
"No one should have to pay those high premiums unless you're considered high class, and we aren't," the woman said.   
The couple-she is 59 and he is 62-are self-employed, and their income fluctuates. At first the Affordable Care Act was, a "godsend," the woman told me.
Before they signed up for Obamacare, they were paying almost $1,000 a month for insurance coverage. Then they bought an Obamacare policy, a Gold plan Anthem sold on the Indiana shopping exchange.

Freedom and the slippery slope toward totalitarianism
It is a very slippery slope between freedom and totalitarian. There is very little space to stand in between.

Roads may need work, but leave well enough alone
Dear Editor,
I read with interest your story about the family in Muscatatuck River Caverns. (Re: "Public safety issue with many private roads," The Sun, May 24.) I know the gentleman quoted in the article and he is right! The roads there are in very bad shape. They need fixed.

Is 'chillier' right word?
I have a comment and question on the use of a word in an article in the May 19 Plain Dealer: the wind made the temperature "feel even chillier." Is the temperature chillier, more chilly or more chilled?
