In regards to Kathleen Parker’s syndicated column about Clarence Thomas’ stoic behavior in the face of past and recent criticism (“Why Clarence Thomas shouldn’t have backed down,” June 2, Page A5), I was a bit surprised and disappointed to learn that, according to Ms. Parker, anyone who is not a “true conservative” has ideas that are illogical and not well reasoned with romanticized views of human nature and will always lose any debate with a “true conservative.”

At least it’s comforting to know that when a “true conservative” is in our midst, the correct and proper decisions will be made.
