Letter: Politicians are people, too

Regarding "Questions arise about Palin e-mail secrecy"

This can go both ways. I am pretty sure "official" business is routed through the right channels when it becomes official.

What is wrong with having your own private e-mail just to communicate? You can relax and just talk to friends. Work may come up, but it is secondary probably to the conversation of getting together after church on Sunday or taking a shopping trip.

The opponents would probably be critical of nonbusiness e-mail, on the "official" government network.

Politicians are people, too. I would not want the world to read all of my e-mails to my friends. It is not top secret, but personal.
