Letter writer displays no respect for others

NEW CASTLE — Editor, The News:

If Judge Judy would have read Joseph K. Waltenbaugh’s letter of Dec. 15, she definitely would use her famous line, “There’s something the matter with him.”

Who in his right mind would consider 64 million fellow citizens misfits and deviants? The last time we heard language like that was from the chancellor of Germany from 1933 to 1945.

Waltenbaugh’s rant portrays a complete disregard for anyone but himself and his beliefs. Waltenbaugh’s numeration lists himself as the only person who matters and I’m convinced that Waltenbaugh believes there is nothing wrong with him.

The only unanswered question is what happened in Waltenbaugh’s life to push him over the edge to lose his social conscience?

Milwaukee catcher Martin Maldonado has been suspended five games for sucker punching Pittsburgh’s Travis Snider during a bench clearing brawl on Sunday. You OK with that suspension?

Yes. Seems fair.
No. Baseball NEVER gets it right in these situations. Should have been at least 20 games for his sucker punch into a pile of players.
Not sure, but I’d love to see baseball be like hockey and allow two guys to fight for a while before breaking it up. Let’s see how tough Maldonado is then.
