Perhaps (Augusta State University associate professor of sociology), Charles Case (letter, Oct. 23), wasn't using his academic common sense when he came to the defense of U.S. Rep. Cynthia McKinney, D-Ga. What he and Ms. McKinney disregarded is the fact that the United States is now at war, and when a country is at war one does not supersede one's commander-in-chief by writing such a pathetic appeal to a ruler of another country.
The Chronicle knows how to bring out the worst in its readers. The vilification of U.S. Rep. Cynthia McKinney, D-Ga., is a major example of doing just that. Comparing Ms. McKinney with the likes of Al Sharpton is a defamation of her character that she doesn't deserve. For that matter, putting Jesse Jackson in the same class as Sharpton is a denigration of Mr. Jackson's character that's not warranted.
Where are the mass media calls for patriotism? Where are the mass fund-raisers? Our elected leaders continue to throw billions of tax dollars into space exploration, the International Monetary Fund and to Third-World bootleg militant groups. But when these supposed revolutionaries jump off our political bandwagon, then they become the new public enemy. The war on drugs and crime is a lie, as drugs continue to flow across our border like water.
I found U.S. Rep. Cynthia McKinney, D-Ga., to generally be a voice of reason since her first election, and I regard the recent vicious accusations of "treason" dominating The Augusta Chronicle's letters section to be nothing more than a modern day witch trial.
I do not have any doubt that Henry Brigham is a good man, Christian and well educated, but it takes more than that to be an Augusta commissioner. It takes a leader who will represent his people in his district. Mr. Brigham has not been that type of leader because he has not been present in many meetings and sometimes leaves the room before a vote is taken. If you do not believe this, check his attendance and voting record. Robert E. Duggar, Augusta
Yesterday I received by mail a brochure from Augusta Commissioner Jerry Brigham's opposition in the upcoming District 7 commission election. That brochure was highly critical of Mr. Brigham and questioned his integrity. I have known Jerry Brigham for over 25 years, and I have always found his integrity and honesty to be above reproach. He has always been available to listen to and to help his constituents and has served this county faithfully through three administrations. Mr. Brigham deserves and has earned our continued support. William V. Tillery, M.D., Augusta
We love to read letters to the editor over coffee in the morning. Some are quite intellectual, well written and meaningful ... Then there are the kooks.
