When I wrote letters to the editor, I try to keep them short and to the point. With language everybody understands, unlike some of the writers, who write a page and a half, talking in circles and saying nothing anybody understands.
Sounds like our politicians, when you asked them an important question, they will give you a 20 minute speech on their kids freckles to endangered species of fish.
And if you insist on an honest answer from them, they get all flustered and have security throw you out of the meeting.
The general public votes these idiots in office and once they get elected, they forget who we are. The talent field, for politicians is about two miles square and 1/8 inch deep. Example, our V.P., Joe Biden.
