Letters to the Editor

'More respectful'

Paul Orth's letter [Jan. 11] bewailing Maureen Dowd's opinion column [Vision Jan. 7] on the funeral of President Ford as "GOPholic vitriol" had quite a bit of his own vitriol, which included his depiction of liberal Democrats as trumpeting the killing of unborn babies and wanting to replace traditional families with gay marriage.

His understanding of liberals is so far from reality that I have sympathy for anyone who might hold an opinion differing from his. As a people, we really need to be more respectful of the opinions of others, and attacking a person whose opinion differs seems a rejection of one of the things President Ford stood for.

I appreciate The Bee having both conservative and liberal columnists.
