Use of ‘idiot’ is relative

Concerning: “Sun preparing for deep freeze,” Robert Wahl, Reader Input, Jan. 2: I had the opportunity to speak at length with an old farmer down in Clarksburg last summer. What started as a political discussion (he was a staunch conservative, and I a liberal independent) turned to the subject of crop yields, their quality, maturation dates, etc. He said whoever doesn’t believe in climate change hasn’t been in farming over the last three decades. He must be one of the “idiots” that Robert Wahl referred to in his rant. Wahl used that term repeatedly and in his case I think the shoe fits perfectly. PATRICK R. LITTLE, Auburn
