A reality check is in order.

Dear Sir,

I receive NYTimes headline news online each day.  In worldwide coverage, and national coverage,  they include only the highlights. Last Saturday, there was someone shooting random motorists in Hollywood,  there was murder run wild on the Virginia Tech campus, there was shooting in a Texas middle school, and at least two other headlines I’ve forgotten.  Just the highlights, not the everyday occurrences.

A marvelous accomplishment

Dear Sir,

I am writing to commend Lucille van Straaten for her highly successful Sterilization Campaign held in Chapala for three days last recently, under the auspices of The Ranch.

Share and be generous

Dear Sir,

I share the foreign community’s anger and outrage over the violent crimes that have occurred at lakeside in recent weeks. My condolences go out to the victims and their families.

Rick Perry discredits Tea Party supporters

Dear Sir,

Millions of Americans who have watched the Republican presidential candidates debate on TV have seen how inept Texas Governor Rick Perry is. That should be enough to impugn the judgment of Karen Cage, head of the Lakeside Tea Party, who boasts in the November 12-18 issue of the Reporter that she has voted for Perry ten times, but there’s much more.

Chinese proverbs aren’t going to help us

Dear Sir,

I was fascinated to learn from your profile of Tea Party president Karen Cage that “The Bible says give a man a fish and you feed him for a day, teach him to fish and he can sustain himself.” I’m curious to know if Ms. Cage can direct me to chapter and verse for that one.
