This is a rebuttal to Barbara Curtis of Auburn, who submitted a letter published on Jan. 13. Her letter criticized my letter of Jan. 7. She said that I didn’t “realize the election was over,” and that I needed to be reminded, “united we stand, divided we fall.”

I wonder if she really read my letter, because I obviously addressed both of those issues. Her comments are so far off the mark, it makes me curious as to why her erroneous comments were printed.

I stand behind the statements in my letter. I understand everyone doesn’t agree with me, and they are free to do that, but they should do it in a rational and accurate manner, not by error-ridden assumptions.
