Letter: FDR, Churchill, or Candidate C?

Letter to the EditorPrint Story | Email Story

To the Editor:

In response to Rinaldo Del Gallo III's letter regarding the flaws of MLK, George Washington, and Christopher Columbus in relation to the respective federal holidays named after each man, I ask that he answer the following question, below.

The moral of the story is that people are more than their personal faults. It is a person's goodness in his or her heart that matters far more than the flaws in their character. Candidate A and Candidate B, despite all of their flaws, saved the World from Candidate C. Please don't judge a person by their proverbial book cover. Being a decent human being means having both flaws and a good heart!

Question:
It is time to elect a new world leader, and only your vote counts.
Here are the facts about the three candidates. Who would you vote for?

Candidate A.

Associates with crooked politicians, and consults with astrologist.
He's had two mistresses. He also chain smokes and drinks 8 to 10 martinis a day.

Candidate B.


He was kicked out of office twice, sleeps until noon, used opium in
college and drinks a quart of whiskey every evening.

Candidate C.

He is a decorated war hero. He's a vegetarian, doesn't smoke, drinks an
occasional beer and never cheated on his wife.

Which of these candidates would be our choice?

Decide first ... no peeking, then scroll down for the response.

Candidate A is Franklin D. Roosevelt.
Candidate B is Winston Churchill.
Candidate C is Adolph Hitler.

Merwin, Lee Pitch Pittsfield Travel Team to Shutout Wins

HUDSON, N.Y. -- Collin Merwin went 3-for-3 with a pair of RBIs and struck out seven on the mound Sunday to lead the Pittsfield Babe Ruth 14-and-under travel team to a 12-0 win over the Columbia Clippers.
 
It was the first game of a double-header sweep by Pittsfield, which shut out Colubmia, 8-0, in the second game and improved to 8-1 this season.
 
In the first game, Charlie Heimann and Matt Lee each doubled, and Adam Lazits drove in a pair of runs.
 
Merwin allowed just three hits and walked four in a complete-game, five-inning win.
