Dear Editor,

I enjoy the editorial and Dispatch pages, and notice this newspaper has joined the national media and Democratic Party by using the word "progressive" in place of "liberal".

As it is no longer politically popular to be identified as a "liberal” they now go by the moniker "progressive.” Referring to politicians such as Mayor Bill de Blasio and Tiffany Caban as progressives is merely a euphemism for liberal.

It's sort of like saying one has "carcinoma" instead of "cancer"...it's just as lethal. The name doesn't make it any less deadly.
