To the Editor:[In the Dec. 26, 2009–Jan. 1, 2010] issue, I read about the man who sued for being called a communist and it bothers me because the communist party is usually a law-abiding political party, and it is not a criminal attack to call someone a communist.
If the man had been called a Republican when he was a Democrat, could he have been sued? Wouldn’t that have been worse in today’s circumstances?
The whole thing is ridiculous, but if you want to start supporting child-napping rapists because I insulted them as pigs, please, be my guest.
