Letters to the Editor

Let’s be proud of Bruce Jenner

I totally agree with Stanley Schulte Jr.’s recent letter to the BND. Glenn McCoy’s cartoons can be very harmful sometimes.

I feel so sorry for Bruce Jenner. He lived his entire life as a woman in a man’s body.

Just look how he thrilled us all back in the 1976 Summer Olympics. He won a gold medal in the decathlon. We were all so proud of him. Now please let us make him proud by accepting is choice of coming out as a woman. He isn’t hurting anyone except his family, and they all seem to be accepting his decision.

Just remember the old saying: There but for the grace of God, go I.
