A vicious cartoon

I do not hold any brief for Donald Trump. I did not vote for him. I wrote in an alternate. But I believe two wrongs do not make a right. The cartoon you chose for your editorial page for Aug. 31 was vicious – to portray Trump as discriminating against “transgender disaster relief workers.”

I’m 91 years old. I have never been able to discover the sexual orientation of a person by looking at them. However, as a World War II combat veteran (Belgium and Germany), I do know something about the need for unit cohesion. Two men in an infantry platoon having a love affair with each other diminishes unit effectiveness. It is a life and death issue.
