Your editorial has deplored Congress' decision to spend $100 million of our tax dollars to feed Ronald Reagan's personal vendetta against diversity and popular sovereignty in Nicaragua. I and most North Americans agree with you. So do most of the world's leaders. I wish that the family-loving men and women in our Congress could see what I saw in a recent trip to northern Nicaragua.
