Your View: Shifting opinions

LAMAR, Mo. — I have a suggestion for a Joplin Globe feature. Reprint all the letters and columns from years past that were in favor of the Patriot Act and how people who showed any concern over it “wanted the terrorists to win.”

It would be enlightening to see how many of those panicky sellouts are now freaking out about the National Security Agency spying on their Farm Town games. At the very least, those of us who were against the Patriot Act from the start can rub it in people’s faces. I’d buy 10 copies.
