Last week's newspaper carried a letter so filled with distortions of truth, unsubstantiated accusations and harmful innuendos that I began to fear for the safety of Hudson! Then I realized the writer was talking about several dozen people that I know fairly well; none fit his descriptions. All are liberty-loving, law-abiding citizens, like me: public school teacher in three schools, three states, including Hudson, for over 25 years; a Christian who worships regularly in a Hudson church, has volunteered for Habitat for Humanity, served with the Food cupboard for 15 years, and volunteered with an inner city St. Paul school for 10.
