A Troubled Reader
I am very troubled by the comments of letter-writer Daniel Solomon in last week's Wave. From the tenor of Mr. Solomon's remarks, not his political commentary, but his personal attacks, it seems to me he's become a bit poisoned by politics and seems to me he's losing his general sense of humanity.
Hey, if Mr. Solomon is not particularly happy with the record, career and principles of John McCain, that's certainly his right and privilege, and if he's inspired by Barack Obama's 'Its Time for Change' and 'The Audacity of Hope,' that's great! Many Americans
have. And, if Mr. Solomon's not pleased with SarahPalin and her short, but interesting career, and a big-time advocate for Joe Biden and his very long record of public service, I say hey great!
But, I am very troubled by Mr. Solomon's personal invective hurled against Rockaway's Republican District Leader. To personally insult Deacy for her political views… a woman who served NYC in the uniformed services, who has taught grade school here on the Peninsula, who volunteers her gifted talents for many causes both here and around the state… well, I find Mr. Solomon's personal attacks against her nonsensical and disgraceful.
Even more troubling to me, though, I found Mr. Solomon's gutterish remarks about Sarah Palin's married life and maternal instincts… well, I found those remarks disturbing, disgusting, demented.
I think Mr. Solomon owes Wave readers an apology.
