Molton errs in politicizing Honor Air

I usually enjoy Randy Molton's art, whatever he's poking fun at. I was dismayed to see him use the wonderful community program, Honor Air, and an image of a veteran in his cartoon to help Rep. Heath Shuler win re-election [Molton cartoon, Jan. 20]. Jeff Miller spearheaded Honor Air, something that all of Henderson County is very proud of, whether they are a Republican or a Democrat. It was completely funded by donations, and it was an incredible leap of faith to provide the "greatest generation" with a chance to see the World War II memorial, at no cost to the veterans. Rep. Shuler and Mr. Miller can both rest on their accomplishments, and let the voters decide.
