Unpatriotic refuse

Letter writer David A. Jones (Jan. 12) seems to be disgruntled over our country's current patriotism, for him to send a quote from Samuel Johnson, from April 7, 1755, which states "patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel."

Jones seems irritated that the United States citizens would unite to do away with an evil, murderous dictator.

I would like to offer Jones another quote: "Cowards and the scoundrel unpatriotic are refuse," by Ed Holmes (Jan. 12, 2003).
