Rymer on GOP
* Instead of an informed, constructive discourse of issues, there appears on the Op-Ed page a mean-spirited column by Russ Rymer comparing a presidential candidate with a convicted, cold-blooded murderer (“GOP Returns to the Scene of the Crime,” Aug. 22).
Hate-filled articles of this kind have no place in the political debate. If nothing constructive can be added to the public discussion of pertinent issues, it would be better if the discipline of silence were exercised.
