I have always been a fan of Dave McKenna’s Cheap Seats analysis of sports, but his Nov. 17 column (“Boiling Points”) was one of the most honest things written about George W. Bush that I have read anywhere. Given the mob violence shown against the vote counters in Dade County, his article was prophetic. I fear that Bush’s actions will greatly strengthen the credibility of anti-government extremists of all types. I myself may never vote again—I am so angry and ashamed. Tell Dave to keep on target. We need the honesty.
