How about taking the high ground?

I see again another published letter where Brandon Kieper’s reply to John Schguette’s Feb. 4 letter fans the fires of political rhetoric, which does nothing to heal and move our country forward out of our political and social polarization. While Mr. Kieper says he has heard enough, he continues to fan the fires with statements about the president such as calling him “a right wing religious nut, who bought and cheated his way into the position of leader of the free world.”These kinds of statements do nothing but generate a like reply from the other side. Why can’t we debate the issues without the name-calling? It would be my hope that the Summit Daily would take the high ground and not publish letters from either side that demean the character of the opposition. Let’s debate the facts and debate them vigorously, but eliminate the name-calling and the character assassinations.
