Today must be a day ending in a "y," because I just opened The Bee to find yet another letter hysterically bemoaning the fact that not everyone on the planet is as intolerant as the writer ("Homosexual agenda is advancing," June 4).

Committed couples halfway around the world in France are entering legally recognized marriages! The horror! How this will affect the writer, and other hand- wringers, is that … give me a minute here.

It's 2013, and people are still writing these letters? Really?
