It was with some sadness that I read Mike McClellan’s opinion piece in Sunday’s Mesa Tribune: “The latest Cause for the Crazies is Common Core” (March 16). Why is it, I thought, that the left has such a hard time discussing issues without name calling like this?

There is no thread to American history over the past 100 years or so more consistent than the inexorable march of federal control over everything. I think the real crazies have to be the people who can’t see that.
