In response to Sonny Shear's Jan. 3 letter, “Baffling letter was full of inaccuracies,” and in defense of Francis Adams.
In my view, it comes down very hard on an 87-year-old who has experienced life for a lot more years than I wager Mr. Shear has and who, like the rest of us who write letters, expresses his views and opinions.
We are not journalists or reporters. We cannot be held to those standards. I hope that if I live to be 87, I will still have the interest and ability to be involved in issues affecting our community and country.
