Yoder story raises questions about definitions
To the editor:
In response to the article "Wife of mental patient files for divorce": Can Millie Strom explain exactly what an "intellectual terrorist" is any better than Rodney Yoder's jailers can explain "mental illness"? If not, it's a nothing but another cynical strategy.
And, by the way, Strom's divorce filing says she wants the marriage dissolved precisely because of Yoder's involuntary status, which is obviously what prevents him from cohabiting with her. Now her own comments have refuted her case.
