On respecting politicians

You never know what will stir up a reaction from readers. After more than 25 years in the newspaper business I am still surprised fairly often -- no reaction to something I though would be of particular interest and heavy reaction to things I thought were of marginal interest. Ah, well.

The thought is prompted by a couple of blog posts I did for the Register's Orange Punch blog last week. First I quoted a letter by George Mason U economist Don Boudreaux about whether the office of the presidency inherently deserves respect. Then I did my own piece suggesting that institutionally speaking, politicians are a parasite class. Lots of reaction, most of it negative.
