To the editor:

RE: “Tea Party’s open letter to Sound Publishing” (www.southwhidbeyrecord.com).

Wow, I’m concerned for your health. Your blood pressure must be through the roof.

Are you truly open to any opinions other than your own? If so, why not create a local forum where people of differing views and ideas can sit down together, share a cup of coffee and in a calm, objective, collaborative, honest manner working together for the common good of the neighborhood, the island and the country. Forget the hyperbole and name-calling. We are getting absolutely nowhere by beating each other up on a regular basis.

As Ben Franklin said at the signing of the Declaration of Independence on Aug. 2, 1776: “We must hang together or we will most assuredly all hang separately.”

This noose of nastiness and name-calling on all sides is getting pretty tight —  choke, choke!
