Until I read "The Haters and Bigots Will Be Judged," by Frank Sinatra (Commentary, July 4), I had no idea how sensitive he could be. It was a beautiful article and I shall take it to heart. He is right; hatred is a disease. This hatred is learned very early in a child's life in the home. A child hears his father or mother mouth off about people who don't look like them or speak like them. Pure bigotry.
He states, "Those weren't tourists on the Mayflower--they were your families and mine." No, Frank, my family came up from Texas, riding a horse.
