LETTER: You had to go there, Travis!

I would like to thank Travis Kelly for all his research in composing last week's article regarding the government's purchase of ammo, etc. Unfortunately, he loses all credibility in his last paragraph where he assigns blame for this unusual practice. He also presents an "allegation" that George Bush said something derogatory about the Constitution. If we are going to publicly discuss "allegations," let's talk about how Obama was born in Kenya, and the Clintons had a guy killed and his body dumped in a park, and on and on.

Allegations should be left to amateur bloggers in their PJ's pecking away in Grandma's basement or better yet, Harry Reid mentioning on the floor of the Senate that "someone" told him Romney hadn't paid income taxes for 10 years. Allegations in print used to be called "Yellow Journalism" which led to a simple rule of thumb that says to be credible, name your sources, or shut up!
