Frakes: Democracy founded on secret ballot

To the Editor:

I see that the talking heads in D.C. want to grill Zuckerberg about the privacy of our communications.

The Russians, Chinese, North Koreans, Iranians and others routinely steal stuff from our computers and they’re worried about Zuckerberg gleaning a little info from public information?

Years ago, before the computer age, if you happened to donate money to a national nonprofit “save the environment” group, after a while you would be getting solicitations from every nonprofit trying to save every thing on the earth. How did that happen?

Of course, the hypocrisy is overwhelming. One of the foundations of our democracy is the secret ballot. I would like our socially conscientious and politically correct politicos to explain exactly how gerrymandering works!

Bill Frakes
