If you would like to quibble over language, I suggest you reread your letter to the editor, Ms. Nichols. I did not call you ignorant. I wrote that your sentiments, as I read them, are shameful and ignorant. Perhaps your sentiments are not ignorant. I was simply trying to give you the benefit of the doubt. If they are not ignorant, then they were, at best, lacking in compassion and at worst, mean-spirited. Either way, it is not name-calling. Your reaction to my post belies your true feelings about my opinion.
