Dear Editor, I was not surprised that John Carter will not debate or respond to the press. ["Congressional District 31: What's Up With John Carter?" News, Sept. 1]. I wrote him about an issue coming before the Senate, and he sent me a long form letter that failed to address the issues I had raised or make any kind of clear statement about anything. I think he was one of those guys in college who wrote pages of text for papers and tests that didn't say anything.
