_'All I need to know about you' [Letter, Village News, Feb 18, 2021]

The subject letter begins with this challenge: "When you say the election was fair and refuse to even look at all the mountain of evidence, it’s all I need to know about you.”

If that’s all you need to know about me, then all the challenges that follow that first one are irrelevant. Also, the first challenge is written in the same form as this classic: Answer yes or no. Have you stopped beating your wife? So, before I can look at, or refuse to look at, “a mountain of evidence,” it has to exist.

Please present at least a small sample of the evidence and I’ll look at it. Note that in the real world evidence is defined as: “objects, documents, official statements, etc., that are used to prove something is true or not true, especially for legal or insurance purposes.”

In other words, it has to be tangible. Many highly paid attorneys and their investigators have searched in vain for that “evidence,” so please excuse my dubiousness.

I looked over the other challenges and didn't see anything that I thought really defines me. I can think of some broad categories that would define more of me.

For instance, my belief that all citizens should be equal under the law. That’s an ideal that we may never reach, but pursuing it is a necessary part of our effort to achieve “a more perfect union.”

We should be justifiably proud of the progress we’ve made. Proud, but not smug: there’s plenty left to do.

John H. Terrell
