Ike Liker

I was thoroughly amused by the tirades of Messrs. Kasper and Stein in your June/July “Correspondence” column. I recall, vividly, being besieged by similar tirades when, as a young first-time voter in New York City, I bravely wore my four-inch “I Like Ike” button and actually felt I was at risk of bodily harm from the likes of Kasper and Stein. They were certain then, as now, that their view of events was the only, the absolute, truth. Fortunately, those of us who know we were right to like Ike are legion.

We hope you enjoy our work.
