The author of the Sept. 1 “Columnist out of touch with today’s world” letter to the editor states that he is a 67-year-old man. He berates columnist Murray Bass for Bass’ letter to the editor (July 16, “Media out to get George Zimmerman”).
The author is in a way berating me: I am 85 years old. Mr. Bass and I have some life experiences. I do not know what the author’s education and life experiences are but I can only guess that the author has been reading and studying Lenin and Marx’s manifestos. I would suggest the author read “Harvest of Sorrow” by Conquest Robert. This book describes how Joseph Stalin became a lifetime dictator in communist Russia; the biggest murderer in the world. The book describes the Ukrainian Holodomor, a planned starvation by Stalin where 10 million Ukrainians starved to death in 1932-33.
The author in his letter to the editor says, “Thank goodness the future of America is represented by this younger generation.” Oh, he means “the free stuff” generation, the “God help us” USA. Yes, “it could be you or me” as Mr. Bass stated in his letter to the editor. It was me already. As an American-born U.S. citizen, I and my family were given two hours to get out of our home, or else; we got out of our home in two hours. The Russian/Polish communist army gave us that order in April 1947; we happened to be living in Poland at the time.
