Unfair attacks on the airwaves

I agree with the editorial ''After the Bombing,'' April 25, but in reference to the ''ugly antifederal invective on the airwaves,'' why doesn't the author also add the rhetoric used by some of our members of Congress such as the likening of the House Republicans to the Nazis? Or the reference by the Clinton administration to the Republicans as right-wing extremists who want to starve American children?

Another example is Jeff Danziger's April 26 cartoon, which implied that the militia terrorists follow Rush Limbaugh. This is unfair. The day after the bombing Mr. Limbaugh praised President Clinton and urged all Americans to unify behind him. Daily anger should be curtailed but not at the expense of restricting dissent.
