Creating outcry over nothing

Regarding the Friday letter, “Look further into Van Jones’ beliefs”: Van Jones is no more a commie than the letter writer of Marysville. Ms. Muhlstein didn’t write a “puff piece” or anything of the kind. Perhaps the letter writer should stop reading Ms. Muhlstein’s column because it’s too challenging and retreat to the Dick and Jane level of political discourse found on Fox News.
