Letter to the editor: Jane Fonda, unions

Two things in the Sept. 25 edition caught my eye.

Kenneth Nath’s letter ”Can’t forgive Jane Fonda” (Sept. 24, TribLIVE) was spot on. About the only thing I can think of to do to Fonda is spit on her. While she was playing with the enemy’s guns, my friends were dying on the battlefields of Vietnam. Mr. Nath, thank you for your service.

Regarding the article “Westmoreland County sued over requirement that union workers complete major projects” Sept. 24, TribLIVE): The only way to end this is to get the two people who back this out of office. Don’t be like the United Mine Workers, who were told by Richard Trumka to vote for President Obama. Ill bet a lot of miners who no longer have their jobs are rethinking that. But Trumka still has his union job.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
