LtE Graveyard

I find it ironic that Richard Cohen ("Energy crisis shows that it's time to scrap Reaganism," July 8) condemns the US as "a nation that believes that you can get something for nothing" while suggesting a government solution to rising energy costs.

Individuals need to adjust to higher prices at the pump. Cut out frivolous trips, carpool and, when the time comes, buy a more efficient vehicle.

But constituents don't want to hear that; they want a "something for nothing" government fix. And with elections in November, they will probably get it—regardless of how much it actually costs.
