To the Editor: Closing the chasm 

To the Editor: 

In his letter to the Editor (Islander, Dec. 17), Mr. Hugh Bowden decries the chasm between America’s political right and left. His 750-plus word letter directed hateful rhetoric at millions of Americans merely because they disagree with his personal opinions. Calling people with different opinions “cult followers” and “brainwashed” only widens the chasm and is certainly counter-productive to healing our country.
