How refreshing to read Spencer Apollonio’s opinion on the editorial page June 19 (“Another View: Compromise a vital principle contained in Constitution”).

At last, somebody who understands that our elected officials, rather than take unyielding, oppositional stands on the far left or right, are supposed to compromise.

I, like Mr. Apollonio, am weary of the political extremists. I will cast my votes for those who understand that the job of representing the people carries the responsibility of meeting in the middle for the common good.
