Letter: Is this language appropriate?
October 10, 2013, 05:00 AM Letter

Editor,

Bruce Joffe castigates Republicans for the government impasse (“Shutdown — who is to blame?” in the Oct. 9 edition of the Daily Journal). He refers to Republicans as “terrorists within the halls of Congress.” He also claims that they “want to destroy our system of government.” Furthermore, he accuses Republicans of “treason.” Now, with this kind of language, which echoes the words of our president, let’s ask Mr. Joffe how that can be helpful to compromise and work out a solution.

Daily Journal Quick Poll
 
If a self-driving car taxi service started in San Mateo County, would you use it?

Yes, without a doubt
If the price was right
If it took me anywhere I wanted to go
I'd rather drive my own car
I'd use my own self-driving car first
No way
