    • John Wayne has done a lot for Iowa

      Found this on The Des Moines Register opinion page from Donyel Caruth
      To answer Kyle Munson's question whether we should love or loathe John Wayne [May 28] the answer is very simple: We should love him. After all, John Wayne has done more for Iowa than Chuck Grassley, Gov. Terry Branstad, Sen. Joni Ernst, Rep. David Young and fake Iowans the Everly Brothers combined.

      I would also like to add to Munson and also letter writer Michael R. May [Americans should neither love nor hate John Wayne, June 2] to go read the books "The Duke In His Own Words" and "Fighting For Freedom: A Salute To The Troops With John Wayne," and then go eat generous servings of crow.
