Another Los Angeles Times letter to the editor, because our voices matter:

Re "Ted Cruz, wacko like a fox," Opinion, July 31

Sen. Ted Cruz's (R-Texas) chances of becoming president go down as the possible government shutdown in October that he's threatening gets closer.

Understanding the consequences of defaulting on our national debt — likely higher interest rates, the downgrading of the government's credit rating and a major recession or even depression — should be enough to convince many Republicans that while Cruz might have been "among the smartest students" Alan Dershowitz taught at Harvard Law School, he actually is crazy.
