It amazes me when ultra-conservatives like Bob Luddy can criticize judges for rulings that uphold the Constitution (“ Ruling denies rights,” Aug. 27 letter). A liberal ruling would have gone in Luddy’s favor, but Judge Robert Hobgood found in favor of the Rule of Law, which normally would please any conservative.

From Luddy’s letter, it appears he would have us ignore our basic laws in order to satisfy a need that helps his schools thrive. In other words, become a liberal when it suits his need.
