Letter to the Editor
Monday, July 7, 2014, 9:00 p.m.

Being a conservative — or sometimes a libertarian — has many benefits. One little-known benefit, however, is to state something, support it by facts that cannot be refuted and then watch the results.

Sometime the liberals' heads will spin, as if mimicking a scene from “The Exorcist,” and then just as quickly explode. It's not the reason. It's just a benefit.

I never met Richard Scaife. But I have to believe, given what has been written about him, that he enjoyed that benefit.

He would have gotten that as he read that other newspaper's “R.I.P.” editorial, as they used it as an occasion to nonprofessionally take cheap shots instead of putting aside partisanship to take note of a man who helped their industry.

Spinning and exploding heads. And I think it would have made Mr. Scaife chuckle, if only for a moment.
