To the Editor,

The letter to the editor in your December 26 issue by Andrew Torre comparing Germany’s National Socialist Party, Hitler, and other despots in history to America’s present day Tea Party was absurd, one-sided, and offensive. I am surprised that a responsible paper would even consider printing it. If Mr. Torre would like to see examples of citizens demonizing fellow citizens during a time of economic downturn, his letter would be one of the best.
