It’s hard to be shocked by nastiness anymore, given the obscene behavior of the current occupant of the White House and those around him, but Steve Woodward’s letter to the editor on Aug. 6 (“Calling It As He Sees It”) left me stunned with revulsion.

He called the people who work at Nature’s Own “tattooed punks.” Then he called Robbins “a garbage infested eye sore inhabited by subsidized entitlement addicts.” It makes me sad to be reminded just how intolerant, narrow-minded and ignorant some in our community can be.

Only a very small, miserable person could write something so vile for publication in the local paper.

Mr. Woodward must be a very unhappy man. Now I feel sad for him too. Almost.
