Vail Daily letter: Change of opinion not bad

I agree with Mr. Carnes (My View, Tuesday's Vail Daily) about the ridiculousness of the political polarization in our country. I want to add that the other thing the media does is to demonize anyone who changes his opinion.

Changing your opinion as new facts become available is usually a sign of intelligence, not a sign of being a turncoat. Regardless of your party affiliation or your label of liberal or conservative, we should encourage changes of opinion, not make them a reason to vote against somebody.
