Letter to the Editor: No consistency

— A few questions

To the editor:

After reading Bobbie Miller’s letter of Feb. 15, I have a few questions for her:

First, were you equally as outraged about executive orders when Reagan signed 381 of them? Or when GWB signed 291 of them? Or is it just the 168 that our president has signed that you’re concerned about?

Secondly, why shouldn’t we celebrate the great things that Martin Luther King accomplished?

Dr. King fought for equal constitutional rights for all citizens; just because his accomplishments didn’t affect you directly doesn’t mean the rest of the country isn’t appreciative for what he did.

In fact, its rather surprising that someone that reveres the Constitution as much as you do would have a problem with celebrating Dr. King’s defending it.
