Give it a rest

Memo to Michael Der Manouel Jr: (in reference to his commentary Nov. 9): "Turn out the lights, the party is over," the voters have spoken. Put your bag of dirty tricks away. In her many public interviews, Nancy Pelosi has never announced, not once, higher taxes nor advocated a so-called "cut-and-run" policy in the Middle East. She does, however, favor raising the federal minimum wage.

Ethics and truthfulness were just two of many elements omitted in Mr. Der Manouel's commentary. He'll just have to try harder next time. In the meantime, he should just eat his share of "crow" and give his poison pen a rest.
