To the editor:

Kudos to the Rotary Club of Lake Placid for standing up for Kate Smith!

Too bad the owners of the Yankees can't strap on a pair of "baseballs" and do the same!

All the plaques in Monument Park at Yankee Stadium include only saints in the world of sports?

Judge the entire person, and know that Kate Smith was not a racist but a true patriot in all her efforts before, during and after World War II.

Those removing statues from our history, we almost compare to a dark past in our world history of true hate and intolerance and book burning!

Who among us has led the perfect life and set the perfect example?

The Rotary Club should be proud to have said "enough," and thank God you Rotary members showed some much needed backbone!
