Heckler was insulting

Letter to the editor

Posted: Tuesday, July 13, 2004

I agree with Heather Karpstein. I too, was appalled at the person who hid behind the mask of our president. He is not a true American. He is as brave as those who hide under the white cloths. People who have to hide their faces when expressing their points of view are either ashamed or scared. These are the very same cowards that are protected by our leaders and our military.

Maybe you thought you were being funny. You weren't. You insulted hundreds of people. We came to celebrate our independence and our nation's birthday. You were the idiot with the lamp shade on your head that thinks he's funny. We may not all agree with everything that our president does at one time or another, but that doesn't give anyone the right to insult him, especially in such a cowardly way. I wonder how brave you would be if you were to meet him face to face? Would you really tell him how you feel? That would be a brave and an adult thing to do. How about providing him some constructive ideas on how to handle the war? How should we help the people of Iraq be free from tyrants?

You seem to be full of something, so let's hear your solution. It's always easier to tell someone how to do their job, but it's a lot harder to actually do their job.
