To the editor:
First, should we honor sports participants who gain high honors despite questions of steroid use or doping? Answer is yes.
We allow the Tea Party to govern despite knowing its full intent to disrupt democracy, to discriminate and to spread hate. We also allowed Mr. Romney to run for president despite full knowledge of his past with Bain Capital and Elsalvador.
We allow wealthy families with unlimited money to finance disruption, violence, hate and discrimination. We allow wealthy corporations to disrupt Environmental Protection Agency proceedings, pollute the environment and kill our citizens.
We should not set double standards.
Second, should we lock schools down and place armed guards inside and have outside security? Answer is no.
Perhaps we should put security officers inside. We should not take away the freedom, education and enjoyment of our children because we as adults cannot solve problems.
