Letter: Disrespectful cartoon

Letter to the Editor:

To the Editor:

In the editorial section of your paper, dated Aug. 11, you included a nasty little cartoon equating President Trump to despicable tyrants of the past, such as Hitler and Stalin. Most of us readers know your clear hatred of our President, but now you have sunk to a new low. Sen. Dick Durbin, who said Candidate Trump's politics were like the Nazis' gestapo during the presidential election campaign, was soundly criticizes for being so disrespectful.

You should take a lesson from the Armed Forces. Our military routinely uses a salute as a show of respect. Respect is for the position and rank, not necessarily the individual who still deserves a salute. Try looking up respect in the dictionary. It's several pages past arrogance.
