Letters : Like a Plague of Locusts

It was with great glee that I read Al Martinez's article about Rob Scribner, the fundamentalist pretender to the 27th Congressional District seat. As a former wanderer in the twilight zone of born-again Christian fundamentalism, I have become more than a little fed up as Scribner and his fellow would-be theocrats have descended on the land like a plague of locusts since their conquest of the White House in 1980.

I have been trying to ride out this eight-year reenactment of the Dark Ages as best I can, like one would a bad case of pneumonia. Articles by kindred souls like Martinez help a lot.
