To the Editor:

Reading letters in this “letters” column for several years and following the back and forth from different writers has been mildly amusing.

Side A considers personal opinion as established fact. Side B attempts to correct the record and considers Side A’s mind to be like concrete: all mixed up and permanently set.

Side A rebuts, offering more personal opinion as fact. This situation is a good example of the irresistible force meeting the immovable object.

The best thing for anyone to do is to read as widely as possible, listen to many sources of news, and watch more than one TV channel. After comparing multiple resources, perhaps someone will change their mind. But changing one’s mind is supposedly one of the hardest things for any person to do.
