Intestinal fortitude

To the Editor:

I just read “Tide of history” (It’s Your Write, Feb. 28).

Don’t worry that you’ve been criticized for not following the trend. Any softy can float with the tide. It takes intestinal fortitude to stand against the flow and do the right thing. When did the majority automatically become right?

Perversion has sunk kingdoms throughout history, and history repeats itself. Are we next?Just like Nikita Kruschev said: We will ruin your institutions!
