To the Editor:

On Star-Herald’s Sept. 24 opinion page, Jackie Gingrich Cushman says, “Many are finding her take – that it’s OK to disagree, just do so agreeably – refreshing,” but it’s scarcely original. We hear it from so many who are not politically for the left or for right, including the S-H editor.

Later in the same opinion piece, Cushman recommends refraining from calling liberal-left plans she disagrees with as crazy. If she thinks that instead calling the plans “naive, sad or ill-informed” is to disagree agreeably, there’s crazy for you, and scarcely worthy of space on the S-H page.
