I object to Lillian Boyd’s description of the people marching as “demonstrators.” To demonstrate is to protest. I was there with my wife and granddaughters, and there was no protest. Only true sentiment for our Marines who died needlessly in Afghanistan.

I was inclined to give Ms. Boyd some slack for not looking up the definition, but then I saw an article that she wrote weeks before where she described Recall Newsom supporters as “anti-vaxxers, militia members and conspiracy theorists.”

Obviously, she has a liberal bent and put in “demonstrators” intentionally instead of Patriots.

With her liberal persuasion and title as senior city editor, she shouldn’t be allowed to write news articles. Her mean-spirited insights should be in the opinion section, where they belong.
