Letter writer lacks respect

Robert Carrell’s “Knight Obama to the rescue” (Reader Input, March 16) is purely contemptible. The President of the United States phoned a young woman who was called ugly names by a radio talking-head. That doesn’t mean that Mr. Obama is neglecting his job, as the writer implies. It means that Mr. Obama was as appalled as the majority of us at the public bullying and derision of women, and one woman in particular, by Rush Limbaugh. I hope that I would have reached out in the same way and for the same reasons if I were in the president’s shoes. Mr. Carrell, your disdain for the president and lack of respect for women was evident in your letter; I believe you are wrong on both counts. Chuck Huber, Newcastle
