Terrible words

I was shocked to read a hideous, evil quote in the Sept. 3 “Heard on the street” feature. A man spoke of our president, saying “he should have rotted in his mother’s womb.” This man is, of course, entitled to his opinion (wrong and misguided as it may be), but The Union should not have printed this graphic, disgusting and disrespectful quote. I’m glad my son is not old enough to read so I don’t have to explain these terrible words to him.
