Dear Editor:

I had to chuckle recently upon reading a letter in which the writer cautions the self-congratulating Ed Konecnik to be careful not to dislocate his shoulder while constantly patting himself on the back.

I had the same impression upon reading Konecnik’s voluminous letters describing his interpretation of “freedom” and “liberty.”

Recently he quoted Alexis de Tocqueville, saying “Americans are so enamored with equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.”

I prefer yet another Tocqueville-ism: “America is great because she is good and if America ever ceases to be good, she will also cease to be great.”
