As I am sure you know, endorsements mean nothing today, and why? Because they rarely if ever are based in fact. It would have been a refreshing editorial if you said we can't make a decision because there are equal positives and negatives to both candidates. Likewise, the column reached a new low when you claimed that Mr. Brown's military service outweighs his role in the health care rollout debacle. When I read this "statement," I could not contain myself. I liken that statement to something an 8-year-old may write — he has an opinion and will go to any depth to defend it. Unbelievable! Oh, I must have forgotten, in the military, did he learn how to waste hundreds of millions of dollars? Now, you feel it a good idea to give him more access to more money? Pathetic!
