In a recent grandiloquent letter to the “editor,” which actually was a so-called open letter to our U.S. Rep. Liz Cheney, the fellow citizen who wrote said missive took numerous potshots. He is entitled to his opinions although it seemed that some of his long-winded commentary used nospecific verbiage in the form of extreme criticism.
It is my opinion that if the writer truly wanted to reach Cheney he should have sent her the letter directly. Maybe he did; I don’t know. It would seem though that the fellow citizen’s aim was to demonstrate his superior intelligence while grandstanding for recognition.
Two more points: 1. Why was his communication printed when it was not a letter to the editor? 2. If open letters are accepted by this newspaper then in the spirit of a commensurable standard I would like to submit some to reach my children and relatives.
Regarding my fellow citizen’s political verbosity, it reminds me of a recent achievement at the San Diego Zoo where scientists have crossed an abalone with a crocodile. But they don’t know whether to call it an abadile or a crock-a-balone.
(Editor’s note: The Tribune gives open letters the same consideration as other letters to the editor.)
