Regarding Eric Olenik's letter of Aug. 14: I am amazed that Eric has the ability to read people's minds by what they write in a letter. Since I can't read minds I take what they say as what they mean. He also says that as a conservative he is bothered by those liberal letter writers until he remembers he is in a red state that will vote overwhelmingly for Romney. And then he smiles.
It troubles me that this state will vote for Romney, but then I remember that how this state votes in the presidential race doesn't matter. And then I smile.
