Letter: Rep. Bruce had it right

Bill Kiker, Beaver Creek CO, Colorado

This is in regards to Rep. Bruce’s remark that we don’t need another 5,000 Illiterate peasants in Colorado. The speaker cut him of and ordered him off the podium.

Well, what he said was the correct description of the people that the House was debating bringing into Colorado to be farm workers. I guess by the response by many House members including the minority leader, that must mean that those people were just too Illiterate and perhaps ignorant to understand the meaning of the word Illiterate!

Could that have been the major cause of the misunderstanding?

Of course they, may have been unable to understand what a peasant is.
