Country must ignore vilification of Norris

I AGREE wholeheartedly with the comments of JL O'Reilly (Letters, June 3). We should be intelligent enough, surely, to ignore a blatant attack on Senator David Norris and see it for what it is -- a less-than-subtle attempt to derail his run for the office of President.

We are not the country we think we are if we pay the least attention to the contrived vilification of a decent man. We might wish that all our politicians had his fearlessness.
