Merry missive

TO THE EDITOR: The June 20 letter of Tom Irwin was truly amazing.

His hysterical lampoon, his dry wit and impish sense of irony exposing the irrationality and irresponsibility of the liberal mindset was an edifying lesson in the power of prose.

The content was, however, a bit too wishy-washy for my tastes. He needs to realize that liberals are basically and irredeemably evil, not merely demented, and it’s a waste of effort to make fun of them or to try to convert them to the one true political philosophy that the good Lord intended: neo-pseudo-conservatism.

Only a demented liberal could think that working together for the common good of all was a noble ideal. Next thing you know, they’ll be telling us to turn the other cheek.

No sir, we must stand firm, stay the course and bring America back to the primary vision of our Founding Fathers, i.e. complete and unfettered freedom to do whatever we please and to bash those whose ideas are different from ours. Compromise, empathy and a civil discourse are for wimps.

I look forward to many more merry missives from the mischievous mind of Tom Irwin.

He’s going to be a force to deal with when he grows up.

Tour de Force fundraising

TO THE EDITOR: I am writing this letter about my husband, Bob Cronin, a retired New York state trooper.

Bob is doing a fundraising bicycle ride called Tour de Force, as he has the last four years.

The 2013 Tour de Force starts on Sept. 8 from Freedom Tower in NYC and ends at the Boston Marathon finish line on Sept. 11.

On Sept. 11, it will be called “Sean’s Ride” in honor of MIT police officer Sean Collier who killed by the Boston bombing suspects.
