Political "junkies" like myself can become quite tense and even depressed reading newspapers or watching the news on TV.

The writer of the letter to the editor entitled "Speak out against unpresident" needs to do some fact finding.

Here is some very good news. We are still the greatest nation on earth and the hope of the free world. Our spirit is born of a united quest for freedom and individual rights against over whelming odds. We are not divided in spirit or ideals. We are divided in our opinions as that is our right and…
