Letter to the Editor: Congress can learn from cooperation in Boston


As I sat and watched the TV coverage of the Boston Marathon bombing investigation and the live capture of the second suspect, our divisive federal leaders come to mind. The multi-agencies' and private citizens' cooperation that resulted in this successful manhunt conclusion shows me that local, state and federal agencies can work together.

Without a doubt, all political ideologies were represented by these people. I must ask our congressional representatives why, oh why, cannot you show your care by following the wonderful example of those involved in the Boston incident investigation and bring and solve the problems all of us face?

Money, firearms, warfare, social issues, these and the many other problems could be easily solved with the congressional cooperation exhibited by the agencies involved in this tragic event.

Do your investigations, cooperate, achieve success to benefit everyone. Thanks.

Spencer W. McIntosh, Edinburg
