Gary Horton: Get by with a little help from our friends

Dangling at the end of your rope isn't the kind of thing that makes for much fun.

Lunetta delivers again with "The cultural tie that binds us together" (July 12). If we can believe Mr. Lunetta, and I do, invited a young, African exchange student and characterizes her political views as "claptrap." I guess Lunetta's melting pot only goes so far.
