In regard to Tammy Rivault’s letter of Sept. 13 concerning Edwin Edwards, do I detect a slight hint of envy?

Just because some “other” intelligent readers would like to read about Edwards, I find Rivault’s letter disrespectful.

Edwards did his time, so to speak, and now he is a free man. He paid the penalty. Let us allow the gentleman to enjoy the rest of his life without so many barbs.

Oh, by the way, I fail to understand how someone in her 30s is a child.

Kudos to The Advocate for reporting important news.
