Whoa up there, Mr. Tingley! Your journalistic nuance of language aside, look across the page from the waning paragraphs of printed self-righteousness. Do you see those flags of proud Americans? Do their remembrances pose a question in your mind of commitment? It certainly should.
You mentioned Vietnam, Kent State and the state of our country; quite an informed palette as a 12- to 13-year-old child. Might have missed a true calling as a savior rather than an op-ed writer, huh? Note the word journalist is not used here, because I believe this quote from a Pulitzer Prize-winning author fits as “Angry words were about the only kind anyone cared to use these days. Men seemed tired of the reasoning process. Instead of trying to convert one’s opponents, it was simpler just to denounce them, no matter what unmeasured denunciation might lead to.”
Think about that as you and your dedicated staff and Comcast affiliates continue to assail and disrespect the office of president and our commander-in-chef. That is personal.
