Letters to the editor, November 24

Betting on old guys

Unfortunately, Philip DeGiulio is correct that the old white man rules are dying and quickly.

These rules are called the Constitution of the United States of America and the old men are called the Founding Fathers, the likes of which were George Washington, Ben­jamin Franklin and John Adams. 

In their wisdom, these old men specified how the rules are to be changed.

This is of no consequence, however, to those in power today and in recent years, e.g., the Congress, the president and the Supreme Court of our nation, the likes of which are those great patriots Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, Barney Frank and Barack Obama.

I am sure these and others of their ilk are just a lot smarter than the old white guys were. 

Whether they are remains to be seen, but I am putting my money on the old white guys.
