Letter: In response to Gruening

Columnist Win Gruening quotes P.J. O’Rourke, in his latest article, “Giving money and power to government is like giving whiskey and car keys to teenage boys.” The same could be said to giving that same money and power to the private and corporate sector or to anyone for that matter.

Government actually does some very good things, critical things for many people, and I can guarantee there are more responsible government workers and programs than Mr. Gruening would like to have us all believe.
