Bitcoin's mystery

Re: What's all this fuss about bitcoins? (tbt* Feb. 26)

Thanks for explaining in detail the concept of bitcoins and the problems the users and investors are having. However, after reading yours, and other explanations of what the currency is and how it works, I still have no freaking idea of what the hell it is. But thanks for trying to help.

David Lubin, Tampa

Tolerance, please

In reference to the "stand your ground" shootings and the Pinellas man charged with killing his annoying mother: If I could get away with killing people just because they annoyed me, there would be dead bodies everywhere. But the Bible warns me against killing and says murder is a mortal sin. So I take that advice and don't.
