I’m writing in response to the Nov. 24, 2008, letter from Capt. Jason E. Poyser. You may recall that Capt. Poyser will be spendng the next six months in and around that charming winter resort, Kabul, Afghanistan.

I was surprised when Hannibal’s city attorney, James Lemon, chose to refuse an active duty army officer’s request for leniency rather than giving him a $130 traffic ticket. If Hannibal had an annual grinch of the year award, Mr. Lemon might have had a pretty good chance of winning it.
