LETTER: Difference between Russia and the U.S.

Russia and the United States differ in many respects. In Russia, when critics of government like “Pussy Riot” express themselves, they stand accused of hooliganism and are sent to prison for awhile.

In the U.S., when salient critics of government like Erik Olander write letters in the Glenwood Post, we do something much worse: We just ignore them.
