I was amazed at a letter to the editor that appeared in the April 5 Herald. The writer seemed to think that the Tea Party people were all rich and Republican.
That wasn't the way at Tea Party events that I have attended! Most of the men I saw were wearing jeans or khakis, as were many of the women. The rest were neatly but not richly clad.
I saw several whom I am pretty sure were Democrats. There were a few professional-looking people, doctors, lawyers, etc., but most appeared to be small business men and women, mostly owners of stores or shops, or tradespeople.
I think the writer should attend a few Tea Party events before he sounds off about them.
