Dear Editor:

I always read letters to the editor in the Times News. This letter from Mr. Argall on December 26 was ridiculous. Dr. Picciano's letters gave facts that could be proven. Mr. Argall's letter made no sense at all. He did not rebut any facts that were pointed out by Dr. Picciano. He did what a typical politician would do, sit on top of the fence and criticize a man for telling the truth. Mr. Argall points his finger at anyone who says anything negative about him for smearing his record.

I must disagree, with all the true facts, he should point his finger at himself. He is the one who has smeared his own record.

Congratulations Mr. Argall, with all your years of experience you are a true politician.
