This is a followup letter after my previous letter was published

I have had a great week I wrote a letter to the editor of the Arizona Daily Star on Monday. It was published on Wednesday. The subject was Senator McCain and his constant ranting in the press about any and everything our new President did. In Thursday’s paper there were two letters almost violent in their condemnation of mine. Low and behold on Friday there was another and not only that put the publisher found a letter from a columnist for the LA Times and printed it. It was two columns wide and the full length of the page. Guess what, on Saturday they printed another scornful letter berating me. I couldn’t be happier. I struck a nerve. I expect negative feedback from my OLLI classmates next week as well. I have joked from time to time that I can’t die; I have so many people I haven’t pissed off yet. A lot more work to do. I may live forever. I may have discovered the secret for a long life. Jack B. Walters February 4, 2017

Letter to the editor published

Open letter to Senator McCain Almost daily you are published in our paper with criticism of President Trump for one issue or another. It would seem logical that from your esteemed position that you could communicate directly rather than through the use of Media. I am sure he would take a call from you. What you do not understand is that you believe we voted for your Republican principles. Nothing could be further from the truth. We voted for Trump and included Republican Congress people as that was the only reasonable thing to do. The Republican Party has been just as useless as the Democratic Party. Your job is to provide council and support as our President tries to get our country back on track If you and other Republicans get in the way the next election you will all be gone. You have two years to get it right. My hope is that you will. Jack B. Walters January 31, 2017
