Letter: Know Constitution and dictionary

November 19, 2013 

In reference to the letter that took five paragraphs to explain that voting was a right and not a privilege, my response is that my Webster's dictionary defines privilege as a basic civil right guaranteed by a government. I agree that our legislators should be familiar with the Constitution, but they also need to possess other qualities such as common sense.
