Deserves more respect

Email

Dear Editor,

In response to David Mataya's letter entitled "Comment on Obama speech," I'd like to reference the German quotation he used. "Arbeit macht frei" translates to "work makes one free," which sounds fine until you learn that the phrase was placed over the gates of several Nazi concentration camps.

Whether one agrees with Barack Obama's policies or not, there is absolutely no basis for comparing President Obama with Adolf Hitler, the architect of the Nazi concentration camps. The office and officeholder of the presidency of the United States deserve more respect.
