    Mr. Kincaid:

    I've just read your recent column, "Obama's Communist Mentor" on the Accuracy in Media website.

    To befriend or love a Communist does not make one a Communist.  To be supported by a Communist does not make one a Communist.  To stand up and say "I am a Communist" or to actually join the CPUSA is how one becomes a Communist.

    I shouldn't need to point out, but I can't resist:  the same idea applies to any chosen philosophy, be it political or religious or of some other form.  We are influenced by the people around us, but not controlled by them.  Friendship isn't destiny - it's friendship.

    It's interesting that you cite evidence provided by the House Un-American Activities Committee.  As far as I'm concerned, the activities of that committee have been fairly well discredited - in large part because of its use of 'guilt by association' as one of its main tactics.  You offer no better here.

    Yours truly,

    Dave Sisley
