Regarding the letter Mr. Williams wrote about your “Bush bashing”: I have a serious problem with it. I am retired from the military and in the past have voted Republican because they supported the military the most. Lately, the president has given my current profession–teaching–a serious headache, black eye, and stomach ache. I feel it is your responsibility and duty to report what affects education, and let the chips fall where they fall. Talk about an oxymoron, Executive Intelligence Inc. and that letter! … [Bush’s] Secretary of Education labeled the National Education Association “terrorists” because they exercise the freedoms we stand for and I fought for. I applaud your paper for keeping me and others who need the truth informed.
