Thank you so much for printing an intelligent article. Regardless of my agreement or disagreement with Mr. Melvin, it is refreshing to read an article based on the actual record. The Grimes’ of this world are all the same. Many liberals chose not to arm themselves with solid information, but react with emotion and bland opinions: it is Bush’s fault (what is?), Melvin “does not make lives better for all the people” (how better?, which people?). Thank you Mr. Melvin for setting the record straight.
