Lessons of Waco
Thank you for the article ``Waco Verdict Challenges Government's Use of Force,'' Feb. 28. From the start of the Waco debacle it seemed most coverage was biased on behalf of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms and attempted to enhance ratings by calling the Branch Davidians ``religious fanatics'' and their place of worship a ``compound.'' The author shows integrity to write an account from both sides. Frankly, the ATF scares me. Will they be calling my family or friends fanatics next? JoAnna D. Robertson, Red Hook, N.Y.
