Stan Cardwell: Condescending viewpoint

Condescending viewpoint

Regarding the Aug. 26 letter, “Turning off big spenders”: I have to say that I found the letter writer’s demeanor quite condescending.

I thought only people from the upper section of the country loved to throw their wealth and their beliefs in the faces of us poor, uneducated Southerners. My impression of Iowans has decreased tremendously but hopefully he is the exception and not the norm for the people of that state.

Perhaps after “Big Spender” pays his thousands of dollars to send Junior to a fine liberal arts college in another state he’ll have just the kind of son he can brag about.
