Kavanaugh responded as expected
I want to respond to Jed Somit’s editorial of Oct. 9. He and many others have switched gears to now accuse Justice Bret Kavanaugh of improper conduct during his confirmation hearings. They weren’t able to derail his appointment to the Supreme Court by prior tactics, so, “let’s try something else!”
I applaud Justice Kavanaugh’s conduct when responding to such a farce that never did pass the smell test. Let me pose a different scenario.
Suppose you are a well-respected bank manager who has a reputation for his/her conduct with employees and customers. Everyone comments on how nice of a person you are.
Now, you are home with your family and someone enters your home, threatens you and your family and creates a very hostile environment in your home. Will you, as the polite bank manager, react to the intruder with the same demeanor as with the people at your bank? Of course not. You and your family are threatened, your life is in jeopardy, your family is being subjected to unjust attacks. You are going to fight with all you have to rid your family and yourself of this menace.
I truly believe that is exactly what Justice Kavanaugh did. He called out those who would do him and his family great harm with unfounded accusations. Well done, Justice Kavanaugh.
