Does Rich James live in the current century? Reading his Jan. 26 commentary incensed me regarding his lack of respect for the opinions of others and for his put-down of Sen. Tomes of downstate Indiana.
Is James insinuating that people from towns that are a blip on the radar don't have the right to promote their beliefs or come up with valid solutions?
It seems to me a little more "Wild West " might be just the thing in our gang- and gangster-infested towns up north, where it's business as usual no matter what the people want.
Though I am not a Tea Party member, I respect their views. And God knows a little fear of God might be just the thing for people like James.
Irreverence for others is a deadly weapon, too. Power to the NRA.
