Disagrees with viewpoint

To the editor:

On Sept. 23 you reprinted an editorial from the Sioux City Journal headlined ‘What in the world were they thinking?’

What in the world were they thinking to criticize our representative, Steve King for unwise statements two of his fellow congressmen made in Egypt. They gave no quotes made by our representative, yet held him equally accountable for probably unwise statements made by his compatriots.

And what in the world were you thinking to quote that unfair attack? Can’t you write your own editorial? And then you compound your unfair attack by publishing your only letter to the editor from a man who has lived in Illinois for FIFTY years, critizing Iowans for electing Steve King. Has Illinois become a bastion of good choices in leaders?
