Regarding the horror in Norway, I have no intention of "looking inward," as letter writer Steve Devon suggests ("Norway tragedy should make us look inward," July 26 ). The devastating murder and destruction in that country had nothing to do with a failure to recognize the "value in multiculturalism." I personally don't see much value in "multiculturalism" myself, but it would never occur to me to bomb buildings or open fire on helpless victims.
As for living in a country "founded on the principle of equality" and Constitutional redress, Mr. Devon has a poor grasp of American history. What "equality" did the Native Americans enjoy after the British lost the Revolution, and I doubt slavery was based on much egalitarianism either.
