Tuesday letters: Where are the voices of reason?

March 11, 2014 

— I often disagree with Cindi Ross Scoppe. Her politics seem to be somewhat left of center, while I am a Goldwater conservative since I worked as a volunteer on his 1964 campaign while living in Boston.

However, I completely agree with her Feb. 12 column (“How the sensible center can save itself”). The wing nuts on both sides have made “compromise” a dirty word, and look where that has left us. I wonder if the voices of reason will ever prevail again.
