    Letters policy

    The Centre Daily Times accepts original letters of up to 250 words. They must include the writer’s name, address and telephone number. A writer is limited to one letter a month, and letters are subject to editing. Send letters to cdtletters@centredaily.com; submit them at CentreDaily.com/opinion; or mail them to P.O. Box 89, State College, PA 16804.

With all due respect to Joe Korsak, Jay Paterno’s qualifications as a quarterback coach have no real bearing on his abilities to be a politician, a writer or whatever other job he wishes to pursue (“What are the qualifications?” CDT, Tuesday).

Perhaps, Korsak himself may be better suited as a legislator than whatever his current vocation is. How many different jobs did you have before you settled on your current one?

It would be quite refreshing if there was a policy in place similar to jury duty in which everyone of age, when called upon, would be required to serve a term or two in Harrisburg.

There is this agonizing frustration that continues to arise when thinking about, reading about and/or dealing with professional politicians. I’m sure this is not solely my opinion.
