Letter to the editor- Brother from New York

Toni Sopocko
South Lake Tahoe

I quote my brother, Duncan Frissell, who works for the New York Port Authority, who is OK and is working toward making New York whole again:

“Western Civilization didn’t invent tyranny, slavery, racism or the oppression of women. What it did do is eliminate those evils (to the extent they have been eliminated). The rest of the world should be damn grateful and if they’re not, we should return them to the ancient tyrannies from which we so recently rescued them. Would serve them right.”

That’s one man’s opinion, and I agree with it.
