I could not agree more with Mr. Bose's letter to the editor ("No place for politics," Sept. 10-23, 2007, page 6).In fact, it echoes the letter you published several months ago by my friend and colleague Kal Barson, a CPA here in New Jersey.

CPAs are often thought of as a monolithic block of conservative Republicans. This may be true in the so-called flyover "red states," but I suggest that the left and right coasts of our country (where the largest population resides, by the way) have their share of centrist and left-of-center CPAs.

Being a CPA and a liberal or moderate Democrat is not an oxymoron, especially among those of us who came of age in the crucible of the 1960s with civil rights and Vietnam informing our political views.
