My, how times have changed

    Dear Editor:

    In the movie "12 Angry Men," screenwriter Reginald Rose describes Juror #8 (played by Henry Fonda) as “a man who sees all sides of every question and constantly seeks the truth. A man of strength tempered with compassion. Above all, he is a man who wants justice to be done and will fight to see that it is.”

    Rose describes #8’s opponent, Juror #3 ( Lee J. Cobb) as “a humorless man who is intolerant of opinions other than his own and accustomed to forcing his wishes and views upon others.”

    In 1957, liberals saw themselves as Juror #8. Today, they are exactly like #3, and there are thousands of then running around in the streets messing people and property up because they know the Vice President of the United States will bail them out.

    What has happened to us?
