Dear Editor:

I was appalled at the letter Randy Haugen wrote in respect to Bruce Riley's Aug. 9 letter to the editor. Many news organizations reported that Barack Obama, on D-Day, was fundraising in California.

To quote CBS news reporter Scott Paulson, "Wednesday of this week was a meaningful and historic day for Americans, and President Barack Obama was too busy campaigning and raising re-election funds to properly commemorate the day. Beyond being wrong, it is inexcusable."

As a senior citizen of these United States, I could not agree more with Bruce Riley and Scott Paulson, shame on Barack Obama and shame on Randy Haugen.
