LETTER: Just who are the "we" that you're talking about

In the Aug. 17 Free Press issue, letter writer Charlotte Reicks responded to Claudette Konola's well written opinion column the previous week in the Free Press.

I have to ask, who is this "we" of whom you speak?

Are they the $20K small business owners who think they have something in common with the Koch brothers or Mitt Romney?

Are they the "we" that believe a "free press should be allowed to hack into private phone calls for corporate gain"? Maybe they are the Christian Right "we" that feel that helping the poor, the sick, the handicapped or hungry children is a communistic Muslim plot?

Of course, this "we" could just be people who will fall for anything broadcast by Fox News or "HATE 1100 AM," because they are the lowest common denominator!
