Please, stop the name-calling

My wife and I are Democrats and we support our president. In a recent letter to the editor, the writer called us “dumbed-down” and “politically ignorant.” Sir, we are neither!

I consider ourselves well-informed of the issues. We watch a variety of the news channels, not just one such as FOX. Online I read the “Drudge Report,” “The Daily Beast” and “The Huffington Post.” On occasion I will even visit the Aljazeera Web site.

I watch all of the Sunday talk shows. We are informed! We are not politically ignorant. I assume you are just as well-informed as we are. I do not believe you are dumbed-down.

We belong to different parties and that’s great. But stop the name-calling! Just explain your position on the issues. I’ll explain mine.
