To the Editor: Comments on bombs, bombings

In the wake of bombs delivered to media and political critics and the horrific slaughter of 11 Americans during Shabbat morning services in Pittsburgh, I write to decry these actions and rhetoric that encourages intolerance. Actions against any of these people harms me and every other American. I am speaking to condemn speech that serves to scapegoat people, and to increase intolerance. I object to divisive language. We need to discuss problems within our country and work together to find solutions. We deserve better than hate speech.
