Letter to the Editor: Sweigert’s column was foolish

In my youth, I served in our country’s military partly to protect our free speech rights as Americans to say any foolish thing we want to, and it appears to have worked. As foolish comments go, Mr. Sweigert takes the cake. Pol Pot? North Korea? As models for America?

No, sir, we certainly don’t want that and don’t need to go that far to remodel America for the better. It was enough that a majority of Americans wised up last November and removed the far right wing and neocons from power. Boy, are they sore losers too!
