1977: Congress Needs Educating

I’m publishing a selection of letters written by my mother, a prolific letter writer who lived in the conservative town of Yakima, Washington all her life. In a 1977 letter she castigates Sen. Henry Jackson and Democrats in Congress for their lack of support for President Carter, and schools them on the history of the Panama Canal.

“Neither you nor the great media with its resources has bothered to challenge the propaganda of Ronald Reagan…”

“We strongly support President Carter in scolding the oil companies; it should have been done long ago.”

  1. Dear Molly,

    As usual, our mom tells it like it is. Good letter. I’m sending you something on Truman which I think you will like. He was one of my favorite presidents in the 40’s-50’s. I hope you had a wonderful Christmas, and many good wishes for 2021. Love, Minerva
