Re: the Nov. 27 letter "Americans go for lowest common denominator"
The letter writer displays a somewhat snooty attitude, probably wanting us to believe he is among the cultured elite group that indulges in the items he mentions, such as art and opera. Based on his letter I can easily visualize him standing alongside Hillary Clinton, nodding approvingly, as she refers to Donald Trump supporters as a basket of "Deplorables." Maybe the writer should spend some time amongst the great unwashed middle class and other hoi polloi so that he can see what eight years of progressive ideology has wrought among them. This experience might help him to understand the surge of voting for Trump. But I doubt it.
