Letter: Letter lacks substance

I knew instantly who penned “Signs of America’s moral decay” (Our Readers’ Views, May 4). Reading it, I’m reminded of two older pop culture references. The first is “It’s the Same Old Song” by the Four Tops. Mr. Schimelpfenig’s letters are the same thing over and over: Republican talking points big on sizzle (accusations, blame and fear-mongering), but devoid of steak (facts and references). Which brings me to the second as asked by Clara Peller in the ’80s Wendy’s TV ads: “Where’s the beef?”
