Paul Pobor’s letter decrying the left (“Russ Hodin and Helen Thomas are two of a kind,” June 17) made me think of the eight years we, as a nation, suffered under George W. Bush and the right’s upside-down thinking. There was war equals peace; torture is OK; No Child Left Behind meant only poor children left behind; health only for the wealthy—the list is endless. As for “ugly,” nothing comes close to Rush Limbaugh’s rhetoric. Now that’s a bizarro world!
