Hyphens? No

“To hell with the hyphen” was a phrase I was taught some time ago by my sixth-grade teacher. It is a quote often attributed to Theodore Roosevelt – meaning we are not Irish-Americans, Hispanic-Americans, German-Americans, etc. We are Americans.

It seems the Obama administration wants us to regress to a nation of one group against another, each fighting for their “fair share.” Such is the pity.

get over it. Hyphens aren't going anywhere.

And the letter writer is a PH.D. The letter reads like something written by one of those nutty neocons with whom I sometimes golf.

Man, throw us a bone with some meat on it. How about some golf tips or something?
