Letter to the Editor: Anonymous Cowards

It was sad but not surprising to read the “Dear Anonymous Caller” letter in the Pulse. It does seem that there is an element of our society that prefers to make anonymous calls to the police, make obscene gestures while driving by in a cloud of exhaust fumes, and parade around carrying assault weapons with their faces covered by camo bandannas.

The letter captures the reason for this reliance on anonymity in a single word: cowardice. Contrast this with the guts it takes to join a protest where everyone’s identity is open for the world to see, thereby risking retribution from masked cowards.
