Re: the Oct. 5 letter to the editor "Too soon for politics."
I am responding to the letter writer who said "this is not the time" for politics after the Las Vegas massacre. Well, has enough time elapsed that we can talk about Orlando, San Bernadino, Charleston, Newtown, Aurora or Tucson? How about Virginia Tech or Columbine? Should we go back to the University of Texas tower shooting in 1966? Is 50-plus years a comfortable enough time to wait for "such statements and activities" by politicians?
