Hatred is scary

It never ceases to amaze me when unregistered voters feel they have a right to comment on political activities. Secondly, it equally amazes me that The Union would even print their comments.

“Heard on the street,” in the Sept. 3 edition, blew me away. First you quote an unregistered who lives out of town and then you quote an unregistered voter who makes a very disgusting comment. If people are too “weak”-minded to register and vote,T then I truly do not believe they have any right to comment.

Shame on The Union for printing Durbin’s comment. Such hatred is a scary thing.
