Work towards compromises

Dear Editor:Regurgitation of right wing (or left wing) talking points is not "research." Bathing oneself in the jingoistic blather of Fox News and Limbaugh is not an education. Terms such as "welfare state" and "parasitic" have no place in an intelligent discussion of issues. The major problem facing this country is that all battles over issues of national importance are being waged by the zealots on both sides. Since neither side is going to win everything they want, it makes more sense to ignore the bomb-throwers on both sides, and work towards compromises that completely please no one. That's how democracy is supposed to work. Richard Henry Downey
