Letter: Like kids playing in a sandbox

We admonish and even jail teens guilty of bullying. Why not? It has led to suicide. It has become apparent to me that this behavior is basic training for similar behavior when these teens become adults. We have all seen children in a sandbox fight over a toy.

Now the sandbox is at our Capitol. The behavior is the same only more sophisticated and stealthy. The ego-driven narcissists strut proudly with the toy in their pocket. I flat out guarantee you, if any of our delegation behaved like Speaker John Boehner, we would take back the toy and kick him out of the sandbox. Do Boehner’s constituents in the 8th Congressional District of Ohio favor his behavior? Does he truly represent their wishes? If so, maybe the country also is headed toward suicide.
