To the Editor:
At 77 years old I am at odds with anything sane in our country.
For example, yesterday I went to Wal-Mart in Harker Heights and went to pay for my purchases with a check.
I was promptly asked for ID. No problem, so whipped out my military (indefinite) ID card. Not good enough.
So she asked for my driver’s license.
I took it out.
She asked my phone number and I gave it to her. She asked for my area code. I gave it to her.
She asked for my ZIP code. I gave it to her.
Bingo! She took my check, zipped it through her machine and promptly gave me back my check.
Now, for Pete’s sake, why is it so racist to require someone to show ID when voting?
Will someone explain that for me?
