Re "More Fitting Name for Swing Voters: Airheads," Dec. 28:
I read John Balzar's columns and enjoy them, but he seems to have worked himself into a lather this time. Lather takes lots of air. But I guess I'm one of the airheads. Though I wouldn't qualify based on his certainty that these airheads don't read. Hmm. I read the L.A. Times, the Register and Investor's Business Daily every day and the Washington Post once a week, besides the Atlantic Monthly, Harper's and the New Yorker. Perhaps I'm overinformed and that is why I don't join the Republican or the Democratic club of "vote your party because it must be right." They propose platforms that they promptly throw away after the election.
