The Nov. 1 letter Lost respect is an example of pettiness and close-mindedness.
The writer has every right to his opinion, but he also needs to respect the opinions of others.
He seems to represent a hallmark of the extreme right that has forgotten that respect and tolerance, even for those who may believe differently, has always been what has held this diverse nation together.
He canceled his subscription to The Miami Herald, which has kept him informed, chronicled the major events in our history and exposed the corruption endemic here, just because the paper didn’t recommend his choice for president. This is typical of that mindset today.
I certainly wouldn’t have canceled my subscription if the paper had decided to back Mitt Romney.
I would have opined the recommendation took up one section of one page in an edition that contained other pages of useful and entertaining information.
