Except for my college years, and two years in World War II (Navy destroyer radio operator-South Pacific), I have ...

Dear Editor, Issues matter. Petty attacks don't. Character is implicated when one misrepresents the facts. If anyone doubts where Christina Stein stands on Obamacare, go to kansasfreepress.com and read her article of Jan. 5. She wrote an article on it. It is not necessary to "cherry pick words" or "twist and take out of context" to conclude that she supports something even more radical than Obamacare. When I say that she thinks the Obama bill ...
