DEAR EDITOR:

Words cannot fully express my disdain for Bob Barr’s latest words of criticism for today’s Olympic athletes. How dare he say in public that he thinks these young people don’t have the drive, ambition, grit that he believes qualify one for the Olympic competition. I’ve watched a considerable number of events which he has chosen not to do. I say shame on you Bob Barr for denying these athletes the same respect you received as a CIA agent, a congressman, an attorney. These U.S. representatives have worked so hard to show the world hard work, repetitive training, years of enduring pain and competition far outweigh your and my accomplishments.

Thank you athletes for showing great sportsmanship and teamwork. We are so proud of you.
