In reference to your recent op-ed piece on the vandalism perpetrated against several Chicago-area funeral homes last month ("Big Labor shows its ugly side," Aug. 8), I would suggest some perspective is in order.

Flunkies from Big Business almost shut down the United States government. Flunkies from Big Labor vandalized three funeral homes in Chicago. Toenail fungus is ugly but cancer will kill you.
