SUPPORTING OUR TROOPS: HUGH HEWITT AND JOEL STEIN
Written by Kevin L. Howard

Dear Hugh [e-mail deleted]:

I'm for the war in Iraq and I come from a family filled with people who served in the military, and I love your show, but you were barking up the wrong tree with Joel Stein [reporter for the L.A. Times who wrote opt-ed piece "I Don't Support Our Troops"].

Yes, he's ignorant about the military…I would even say he's an idiot…but his point in his article is a valid one.  Because of your disdain for his position, you couldn't hear his point: people who oppose the war can't also honestly say they support the troops.  That way his point, and you kept trying to argue with him [on your show] about points he wasn't trying to make in his article.

Sincerely,
Kevin L. Howard
