Re "Senate panel passes gun bill" (Capitol & California, March 15): A few years ago, Sen. Barbara Boxer took umbrage when Brig. Gen. Michael Walsh addressed her as Ma'am, rather than senator.
With Sen. Dianne Feinstein's angry response to Sen. Ted Cruz's query about the constitutionality of her proposed bill, we are again treated to this kind of imperious attitude that any challenging question is viewed as a lack of earned obeisance, and therefore disrespectful. If anyone should be aggrieved, it is our sixth graders.
