Exasperation boils over for letter writers

I would like to shout a loud “amen” to the writer of “Sick and Tired” (Letters, Aug. 25). I agree with everything he said, and so does everyone I know. We are part of that throng of people who love our country and are dismayed to see the direction it is taking. I can remember when we didn’t have to lock our house when we went out. We were all patriotic Americans. We served our country (I served in Korea). We paid our taxes. We were embarrassed if we needed welfare money. We worked hard, served on juries, and served our communities. Police were, and are, our friends – not our enemies.
