ARMED MILITIAS POSE REAL THREAT

Your lead editorial in the March 27 paper titled, "Increase in armed militias poses a disturbing threat" was an excellent essay concerning a very disturbing trend we see all around us. I wholeheartedly applaud you for taking a strong stand on this real threat to our society.

You were right on target when you referred to this increase in armed militias nationwide as "alarming." Unfortunately, a great drought of common sense and reality seems to have appeared all across America.It is frightening that unthinking Americans in increasing numbers accept far-out claims and theories of conspiracies without real evidence, and these militia fanatics are now making some disturbing inroads in Utah.

We need to be on alert, especially for those who refer to us as enemies when we question their rantings. Keep up the good work.
