Words do matter
Letter to the Editor generic

Dear editor:

The word “Mob.” I find the casual usage of the word mob very disturbing and frustrating, such as during the events surrounding now Supreme Court Justice Judge Kavanaugh. 

I believe the protesters were women across the United States who were hurt and angry. They wanted their elected senators to hear their voices and concerns. 

To imply or suggest they were all Democrats and Democrats were a mob, or to say this about any party is wrong.

I do not remember seeing anybody checking party affiliation.
