To The Daily Sun,
My response to Mr. Eddy will be as follows: I want to say, "No," I by no means tried to put words in your mouth. I was returning to offer to you that you offered Mr. Hoyt, which was if he doesn't want to be exposed to opposing viewpoints in the pages of The Sun, stop reading them and leave the rest of us alone.
I felt that for you to point him out and not mention any of the others by name was as they are all right-wingers. I have read a few of your past letters tonight and though I don't agree with all you write. I don't believe I ever mentioned you in a letter before. I can accept your right to an opinion as long as it is based a known subject which many would have different opinion.
I am watching Fox News now — The Kelly File. I admire your mention of your life experiences around the world. I have written about this before, however in brief. I joined the Army right after high school, 17 years old. I served from 1958 till 1978. I served 9.5 years overseas in France, Germany, Thailand and Vietnam. My point being, raised in the 1940s, we were taught to respect our elders. I'm sure you know that their is no such thing as "freedom of speech "in the military.
A week after I retired I realized this country is full of protesters, whiners and other names which I am not free to write. I worked the next 20 years as a cross-country truck driver, traveled through 46 states and seen enough of this country to know that if you listen to those who complain about illegal immigrants that in fact do the jobs Americans want no part of. If anyone feels differently, travel Interstate 10 from Florida to California, Interstate 5 north to Bellingham, Wash., and see for yourself.
I understand you want your right to free speech, Messrs. Meade, Wiles, Earle can get together and fill The Daily Sun full of garbage, and if you doubt that reread my letter March 21, plus those by Wiles and Earle. Enough said.
