letter to the editor:

Two sides of Edward Snowden

Americans (ordinary citizens as well as the media and politicians) are sharply and passionately divided in their belief as to whether Edward Snowden is a traitor or hero when in actuality he is both — a traitor to the government as well as hero of the people.

Most of us stand together in our concern over the issue of domestic drones, wholesale wiretapping, surveillance cameras everywhere and God knows what else that exists now and will exist in the future, and with such addictive, self-serving power in the hands of our government I tremble to think what the United States will become if this trend is not reversed.

If there were ever an issue that could end the convulsion of pathological partisanship, this is it.
