Letter: John Chowning lauds Dr. Phil Aaron commentary

About: "Politics and Public Service in the U S Senate"


Thanks to Dr. Phil Aaron for his insightful editorial in response to that of David Hawpe. I applaud his defense of U.S. Senator Mitch McConnell and his very fine summary of the extraordinary record of the late Senator John Sherman Cooper. Senator McConnell's contributions and service to this state and nation are certainly comparable to that of Senator Cooper.

Dr. Aaron also points out the friendship between the two gentlemen and the excellence displayed by the staffs of both men. Mitch McConnell may be a politician - contrary to Mr. Hawpe's limited understanding - anyone who runs for office fits into that category as well as those who participate in the process. No one has done more for our part of the Commonwealth of Kentucky than Mitch McConnell. I applaud Dr. Aaron's excellent editorial.s/John Chowning
