In response to Linda Lussier's letter to the editor on Sept. 4, this is the first time I have read of someone questioning McCain's mental stability. He was a prisoner of war for more than five years and has been in the Senate for a very long time. I doubt his mental capacity has been compromised.
His history of cancer was skin cancer. My mother is 93 years old and has had numerous skin cancers and very few are life threatening. Walk down the street and ask how many people have had skin cancer. The answers might shock you. We are a sun-loving nation.
In his favor, he chose a female who can relate to the problems we women face every day. She is not a Washington insider, to her credit. Sarah Palin has done a great job in Alaska. Their previous administration had many problems, and she faced them and solved most. She is proud of her family and proud of her country.
