Wow! Sure wish I could have read the letter attributed to me by Mr. Carl McDermott in the Oct. 23, Chronicle. I might have learned something about myself.
I was unaware that I lacked compassion for “the common man.” As a veteran, a senior and a man who has worked all his life, I am “the common man,” and I do not lack compassion. I wrote nothing about legalized marijuana. I said this should not be made a constitutional amendment.
