Letter: Misplaced priorities
Bridge destruction may be big news in some places, but I found it puzzling that it was displayed as the biggest story on the Monitor’s front page Thursday, the day after an astounding episode in the U.S. House of Representatives. For a chairman of a House committee (Rep. Darrell Issa from California) to close a hearing while the ranking minority member (Rep. Elijah Cummings of Maryland) was attempting to speak has to be one of the more disturbing scenes to this former U.S. history teacher.
I would have thought that such an unnerving event would at least get some coverage, or maybe an editorial comment, in the Monitor.
