In regard to Brenda Melancon’s letter on Sept. 15 concerning Edwin Edwards, I detect ignorance.

Edwards damaged the image of our state in the nation. It is time for him to hang up his hat and keep it quiet.

I guess next it will be former U.S. Rep. William Jefferson or former Insurance Commissioner Jim Brown teaching our children in school how to beat the system.

By the way, 30 years old is not a child, but for Edwin Edwards is one of the playmates of his grandchildren or great-grandchildren.
