Playing fair

August 07, 2004

Re "Dissent From Left to Write," by David L. Ulin, Aug 3: The explosion of hateful political books hitting the bookstores and bestseller lists disguised as nonfiction is further evidence of the unseemly methods in which presidential elections and political games are being played. Simply put, it's like the political teams are playing dirty in a visceral baseball game, leaving the majority of voters in the stadium muted and getting the short shrift in democracy because the extreme right and left are hitting foul balls called fair.

Real dissent has not been widely heard yet. When it is, the two-party system will be ejected from the game.
