Fitting words


   To the Editor,
   I think the very first Pioneer editorial about the Tom Tucker tragedy fit the community so well, for it spoke to us, young and old, about the virtues of being "just ordinary" ... not the prom king or the top student, but just ordinary folks who are part of the bedrock of our society.
   Though few of us will ever be called to "stand," we have the shining example of Thomas Tucker, young, middle class American who met the surpreme challenge.
