To the Editor:
This may be the shortest letter to the editor that I’ve ever written. It’s in response to an Our View from several days ago (July 5, 2014) in which the Kane County Chronicle touts election-day voter registration.
My opinion? I agree with Thomas Paine, who is credited with having said: “What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives everything its value. Heaven knows how to put a proper price upon its goods; and it would be strange indeed if so celestial an article as freedom should not be highly rated.”
