Re: “Tune it out,” Editorial, July 23, p. 24: Please don’t equate political ads against re-electing (President Barack) Obama as unhealthy for patients to watch or participate in. This article is horrid. You tune out and don’t be a part of the republic—vote for whom you support. You should be ashamed of writing this, and Modern Healthcare should be ashamed to put it in print. Patients aren’t mindless sheep—don’t ask them to be. Abigail J. Eubank Nurse practitioner Hendersonville, Tenn.
