To The Daily Sun,
A letter to Bernadette Loesch:
My friend, I am late in writing this letter but I want you to know I am outraged by the obscene and intimidating phone call you received due to your political opinions. This is inexcusable!
I could simply say "just consider the source" or tell you that the anonymous caller was just a gutless coward but I know it must have been scary for you. Some of our local right-wingers ARE scary!
I am glad you informed the police and hope (although it is doubtful) they find the caller and prosecute him to the fullest extent of the law. In the meantime, Ms. Loesch, please be safe. Some of these people are not exactly mentally or emotionally "balanced."
Usually, when people who disagree with my letters call or email me, they at least identify themselves. Nevertheless, there are those who have threatened or otherwise tried to intimidate me for my political and social positions. I have also let these people know that I refuse to be intimidated.
A fairly recent example of this actually had a humorous note. I was in a local grocery store and someone I "did not know from Adam" and who was acting very strange apparently recognized my picture from The Sun. He started berating me for subverting young minds with liberal propaganda, etc.
It turns out he thought I was Leo Sandy, who has not written for The Sun for years! Then he had me confused with someone involved in some school board politics. These folks should at least get their writers straight!
