Chuck Pinkey needs some better sources|

The Daily Star

---- — Regarding Mr. Pinkey’s column on Washington politics in the Oct. 22 issue: He quotes Fox News? This is Mr. Pinkey’s source of information? Perhaps if he doesn’t find the “facts” he needs from such reliable sources as Hannity, O’Reilly, Beck and of course, the great guru, Limbaugh, he might check out Grimms’ Fairy Tales.

I do have to admit that Mr. Pinkey adheres to his basic beliefs. Years ago, Mr. Pinkey and I argued, via letters to the editor, about our country’s role in initiating the Iraq war.

Guess which position each of us held?

Anyway, I do not want to start up a new dialogue with Mr. Pinkey, for I am sure it would be a wasted effort.

However, reading his columns certainly does reinforce the old maxim, “Some things never change.”
