Worried for the future

June 13, 2013 

"A talent for wasting taxes," by Steve Vandever is the absolute best of recent writings in the letters section. In my book it was A+, summa cum laude writing.

I keep looking for even one politician who even faintly resembles the late Sen. Paul Simon of Illinois in integrity but I'm not seeing any.

I'm 88 and I have great trepidational concerns for future generations.
