Asks for quiet in wake of removal trial 022199 - The Augusta Chronicle



I am saddened at all the pictures and breathless coverage of our neighbor, Rep. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., and the unrelenting righteous drumbeat flowing forth for weeks in your editorial columns.

Bill Clinton has not been removed from office so what will the people do?

It scares me to imagine all the wailing and gnashing of teeth we'll be reading since Mr. Clinton was not removed. All this hate, bad will and exclusion created will become, in some way, part of our American political process.

Maybe we should all quiet down a little bit and believe in the ultimate goodness of our voting system and the intelligence of our fellow citizens.

Richard Dillenbeck, Augusta
