Letter: The dumbing-down of America

I’m stunned that reader Joe Campbell claims that “jobs, medical care, Social Security, pensions, collective bargaining, and women’s rights...” are “family values” (“Check their records, vote accordingly,” AFN, March 14).

Somehow I thought “family values” had to do with loving, taking care of, and supporting each other in a traditional family environment, knowing right from wrong, working hard “to get ahead” and to be able to send your children to college?

I think Campbell’s attitude is, unfortunately, representative of a good portion of the population, even here in Ahwatukee Foothills: the ultimate in the dumbing-down of America.
