In his Aug. 5 column, Chuck Doud writes about the prisoners and their hunger strikes. He felt that murderers and rapists get what they deserve in prison — good riddance, whatever that means.

Today I write to remark that an editorial such as Mr. Doud’s would most likely be received by people in Madera as speaking sense, good conservative sense.

I think that any feelings of superiority or certainty are welcomed by all of us, though one’s hunger for such feelings also can be slightly distressing. (Can I feel good about someone being bad?) I guess I can.
