Letter: Collins’ offer to skip his salary is laughable

I read in the Jan. 10 Buffalo News that Rep. Chris Collins, whose net worth is a mere $40 million or so, is bravely sacrificing his salary during the government shutdown. This selfless act reminded me of other American heroes, like Martin Luther King Jr., Audie Murphy and Nathan Hale. I was actually moved to tears. After all, haven’t most people experienced laughing so hard they started to cry?
