Your editorial Getting High On Renewal (Jan. 19) characterizes the
Liberal proposal to legalize marijuana as an "appeal to the political
left." But Republican presidential hopeful Ron Paul also advocates
legalization. So it seems only The Globe regards libertarians as left wing.

Perhaps it's best to dispense altogether with this unhelpful division
of the world into right and left. Ideology isn't that simple. And most
of us manage to occupy both poles at various times.

Why not just restate "appeal to the left" as "appeal to common sense"?
