M.A. Mentzer’s letter (Sept. 8) was the usual “liberal rant” about conservatives. But you have to give him credit, he paints with a broad brush. He condemned Bush, Reagan, Limbaugh and Nixon. If letters space wasn’t limited he’d probably have gotten around to George Washington and Abraham Lincoln. In the last paragraph of his letter he even quoted some guy from 1835, claiming, “most stupid people are conservatives.”
Actually it is hard to take such tirades seriously; but you have to take into account he is probably a liberal Democrat and they will say anything they are programmed to say.
He mentioned he was 60 years old and served his country. Just for the record, I was 26 years old when he was born and served my country also, in World War II.
