Thanks for publishing Hank Lentfer’s opinion piece on the silence of Sen. Dan Sullivan. I also have been struck by that silence. Senator Sullivan is of course not out of step with other Republican office holders that apparently put party over country. I use the word “apparently” because I don’t want to believe our senator actually shares the president’s values. I suppose cowardice is a lesser evil. I look forward to November when I can express my opinion at the polls.
