Letters: D-day was more than a 'thing'

Thousands of Allied soldiers gave their lives for freedom in that "thing."

Referring to one of the most important events of the 20th century as a mere "thing" goes too far. Were it not for that "thing," Goldberg might not have the freedom to be so nasty in print.
