Re "13 are dead in D.C. Navy Yard shooting" (Page A1, Sept. 17): How does a person get a job as a contractor at a top secret Navy facility, if he has a criminal background and has mental illness issues?
How does a person who has a felony conviction for embezzlement get a job with the state of California? I will tell you. It's called the dumbing down of America and liberalism. We don't want to embarrass or offend anyone. So we get what we voted for, liberal Democrats. Their goal isn't to represent us. It's to represent a few and the unions.
