In response to Jules Witcover's column ("Nuclear option preserves majority rule for Senate Democrats," Nov. 26), I guess if I threaten to kill someone, but don't do it, I am still liable for murder charge. This is equivalent to the argument that the Democrats doing the "option" is turnaround as fair play.

You would think the White House or George Soros could send your columnist better arguments than that. Why don't the Democrats just use the "reconciliation" method and kickbacks? Worked before.

Lyle Rescott, Marriottsville
