Diatribe denigrating conservatives was uncalled for

Your editorial on green energy light bulbs exposed The Sun's true colors in its intolerance of the idea that conservatives might have a different point of view on the subject of global warming ("Don't save the planet," May 4).

The editorial blatantly denigrates conservatives by making them the butt of a "how many conservatives does it take to screw in a light bulb?" joke and using the term "mush-brained" to describe them.

To write that conservatives "take pains not to recycle" or "enjoy dumping used motor oil down the storm drain while no one is looking," along with other ridiculous statements, is just over the top in exposing your hatred and intolerance of anything conservative.

The editorial was juvenile and mean-spirited. I found it very offensive.
