THANK God Arlen Specter has left our party. (Please take John McCain and daughter Meghan with you.) He's the most liberal "Republican" ever, and I still don't believe the "single-bullet theory. " God help us with King Obama in command, with his TelePrompTer and Joe "Plugs" Biden at his side. Jim Della Vecchia, Philadelphia

AS WE CELEBRATED Memorial Day and pondered its significance, it is difficult to comprehend the rudeness that commencement speaker John McCain had to endure at the New School in New York. I hope that the indecorous young collegian who dishonored Sen. McCain gets the opportunity to read Christine Flowers' persuasively penned May 26 Daily News op-ed. Then her education would be complete. David Lynch Willow Grove

The Inquirer's Editorial Board took the unusual step of accompanying today's presidential endorsement of Sen. Barack Obama with a dissenting view making the case for Sen. John McCain. The dissenting view runs about half the length of the endorsement, and notes that the decision to back Obama "was not unanimous. " Editorial page editor Harold Jackson said that some newspapers, such as the USA Today, occasionally offered dissenting views on issues, but that he did not know of one being crafted for a presidential endorsement.

JOHN McCAIN was severely wounded in Vietnam and languished in a North Vietnamese prison for years. Max Cleland had three limbs blown off by a grenade. John Kerry saw action in Swift boats, saved a life and was awarded numerous medals. At about the same time, George Bush went AWOL from his National Guard unit. The Republican attack machine has spit on the service of all three of these war heroes. Spit on them just as surely as some of our returning vets were spit on so long ago. Yet George Bush continues to get a free ride.

It was like living aboard a floating city. There was recreation. Allen Polixa, a crew member on the USS Forrestal from 1980 to 1982, often took "swim breaks" miles out in the Atlantic Ocean, jumping into the water from just below the ship's top deck. There was order. Fight a colleague or steal from another crew member, said Jimmie Stewart, who served on the Forrestal from 1960 to 1962, and it was down to the brig. No questions asked. And there was chaos. In July 1967, a devastating fire and a series of chain-reaction explosions took the lives of 134 sailors aboard the Forrestal.

George W. Bush coasted toward the Republican presidential nomination yesterday, winning primary battles across the country and all but ending the insurgent challenge of John McCain. Bush, the Texas governor, racked up victories in California, New York, Maine, Maryland, Georgia, Missouri and Ohio and the Minnesota caucuses, and was leading in Idaho and North Dakota as well. McCain, the Arizona senator, won in Connecticut, Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Vermont, all New England states that offered only a handful of nominating-convention delegates and little reason for hope of victories outside the independent-minded Northeast.
