To the editor:

In response to Charles Weinhagen, Saluda – “Whine, Whine, Whine” (March 13), I had to chuckle at your response to those that “whine” about having to live by the rules.

Don’t you understand that these elite liberals think the rules don’t apply to them? They honestly think that they are somehow “special” and therefore they are above the rules that apply to the rest of us?

Apparently those that purchase a Prius can now just do a “rolling stop” in order to save the cost of their own fuel; never mind that “rolling stops” have been against the law for as long as I know.

Perhaps the Prius owners that also have a co-exist bumper sticker on their car should be able to disregard paying their taxes too …. Oh yeah, many in this administration’s cabinet already do that.
