Dogged opposition

Dogged opposition (KAL/Baltimore Sun / April 13, 2014)

Regarding Kathy Novak's letter about the difference between today's Democratic Party and the party of 50 years ago ("Dogged opposition," April 13), I am sure KAL hasn't forgotten that it was the Southern Democrats who voted against President Lyndon Johnson's 1964 Civil Rights Act — and that those ignorant "Dixiecrats" shifted their allegiance to the Republican Party after they lost the battle over civil rights.

It is great having KAL's political insights back in The Sun.
