I hope the recent movement by some to import Ron Kovic into our 38th Congressional District to oppose Robert K. Dornan fails. Such a confrontation might sell newspapers but has no other useful purpose. At a time when Dornan can and should be defeated, there are those who would run a person who hopefully could not be elected.
Kovic is a man who apparently grew up with a distorted fantasy of war and a thirst for combat. During his second tour of combat in Vietnam, he was gravely wounded. Reality would not compromise. His once-beloved fantasies became the enemy of his new, distorted view of the world around him.
