Letter to the editor: A letter to Congress

Monday, October 21, 2013 - 8:46 am

Thanks to all of you who were not taking all or some part of your normal pay.

If you were deferring your salary, you are just kicking the can down the road, despite your good intentions.

Giving your paycheck to charity, no matter how worthy, is just plain unethical.

This money does not exist. If we had it, we would be paying the people who were furloughed.
