Gordon S. Jones chronicles all my letters to the editor in this periodical and the others in this community as well (Readers' Forum, Sept. 22). The message in those letters has always been the same: While there is strength in "group think," the ultimate authority must always rest with the individual's own reason and critical analysis.
Jones feels that my correspondence in these public forums through the years is worthy enough to document and retrieve, and this might indicate that individual thinking is going on. Good for him. It seems to me that in this time in history where authoritarianism is being abused left and right, everything should be examined and challenged if need be.
