Republicans protesting, too

The writer of the June 7 letter “Mobs rule” assumes there were no Republicans among the demonstrators. Not so! There were just as many compassionate, deep-thinking Republicans and libertarians present as others. They, too, want to see the legislature do justice to the mentally ill, the poor, the aged, the down and out of work, the illiterate, sick and affiliated. Sorry he felt he couldn’t join such a “mob.”
