Letter to the editor

Posted: Friday, November 19, 2004

To the mighty mudslingers on both ends of the political spectrum. You would all be well served to heed a couple of timeless truths. To paraphrase Herbert Spencer: Contempt, prior to investigation, is a guarantee of everlasting ignorance. And from Bertrand Russell: Fools and fanatics are always so certain of themselves, and wiser people so full of doubts.

JoAnn and Karl Schoeppe
