To The Sun:

In a Jan. 27 Public Mind, Richard Sengphiel of Lawrence claims to remember when Sen. Eugene McCarthy of Wisconsin was destroying careers while rooting out non-existent communists in the 1950s. 

I am well-versed in the part of American history when Sen. Joseph McCarthy, a Republican, did that. I also clearly remember when Sen. Eugene McCarthy of Minnesota ran for president in 1968.

Accuracy matters. — JIM COOK, Parsons
