War of words
Having read the beginning of Ms. Giddings letter of Jan. 10, 2013, my immediate thought was to no longer engage in the “war of words.” That is until I read the entire letter.
She would “guess” and “imagine” that I have a “problem” with people who are Democrats and people of color, or more specifically, “black.” That is quite an imagination and a very inaccurate guess.
Amazing how she turned a fairly civil discourse into a race baiting and untrue diatribe. Nothing in my previous letters alluded to or even hinted at any such thing.
I will not dignify her thinly veiled accusations by trying to defend myself against such illogical thinking. The twisting of information from truth to fiction engaged in by Ms. Giddings appears to make her well suited to run for Congress. At least on paper.
As to Mr. Keen, my late father was a Marine assigned to the heavy cruiser San Fancisco and was in Pearl Harbor on 7 Dec. 1941 and he engaged in other battles thereafter.
Sir, despite our apparent political differences, you have my profound and everlasting respect and gratitude for your service and sacrifice.
The Mr. Keens of the world have secured my continuing freedoms for which I shall remain eternally grateful.
