“Thanks for the column on cowboys and Indians. My thoughts exactly, except that I can’t express them like you do. Of course what you said is something we don’t like to talk about. We have our own atrocities that we would like to minimize via Hollywood.
“To the ranter who said Mr. Walden doesn’t have the intellect to write columns on political subjects: Do you really think that our politicians of today exude all that much intellect? Surely you jest.
