A rebuttal

Dear Editor:

Just a note to take exception to Eric Simon’s message of thanks (“Dripping with Sarcasm,” The Aspen Times, Sept. 9) to “right-wing conservatives” forbidding their children from watching President Obama’s speech. Of course they should have been allowed! I only wish my junior phi bête physics major son could have heard such wisdom from a community organizer years ago, since he would have been so inspired and motivated to learn that hard work and perseverance might have made himself and the country so much better off.

Likewise, the extremely valuable utility of President Obama’s advice a few weeks ago about how to be a “Good Father” … if only I had been exposed to such sapient and useful guidance years ago! This stuff must be hot news in metro Chicago!!
