Right-winger gets a slamdown

I love how this letter to the editor in today's Rockford Register Star has drawn a couple of good rejoinders from better-informed folks. (Scroll down to see the responses.)

In the days before the RRS had a Web site that allowed for responses to letters and articles, such drivel as that peddled by the letter-writer in this case would go unanswered unless someone bothered to write a response, which wouldn't get published at least for a few days (and then without benefit of the entire text of the first letter appearing with it).

Yes, the Internets (as George W. Bush calls this medium) is a wonderful thing.
