Leadership Of Which We Do Not Have To Be Afraid

Dear Editor,

I do not know which I find more concerning. Palmer Doyle's letter to The Wave last week or The Wave's decision to print it. If a reader wrote a letter to The Wave suggesting that we should not vote for a candidate because he has Jewish ties I am sure The Wave would find it too bigoted and incendiary to print. Why is the same editorial integrity not afforded to Muslims?

Five years ago Barack Obama was in the Illinois State Senate. Ten years ago he was teaching law school.

Leadership that lies to us to get us into unnecessary war I find scary.

When everyone was going crazy and voting for war, Obama had the courage and the vision to vote for peace.

That is leadership of which we do not have to be afraid.
