Letter to the Editor: I’m glad we’re finally talking — NOT

The letter to the editor titled I’m glad we’re finally talking on Feb. 17 was like a glass of ice water in my face on my desire to talk. Perhaps a course in communication skills is in order or anger management. Why would anyone want to talk to someone that insults and lambast you before the conversation even begins?

I find it interesting that that writer so clearly described many republicans’ opinion of a democrat. It was uncanny how precisely the writer described themselves. Hope we do start talking rather than berating, demeaning and screaming. You did not even have to use all caps to get that feeling across. You can attract more bees with honey than you can with vinegar.
