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.

Ajijic must emulate cleaner towns

Dear Sir,

Recently, a group of people from the Lake Chapala Society were invited to spend the day in Tepatitlan, a town in Jalisco with 100,000 inhabitants. What struck me and a number of others was how clean the town was – I only saw one piece of garbage in the street the entire time we were there.

Letterman’s absolute nonsense

We owe a great big thank you

Dear Sir,

I went out this morning for my daily “dog walk” in Ajijic. As I turned onto the carreterra heading toward the park, I ran into a group of 10-15 young adults in orange CONALEP T-shirts with trash bags picking up trash.
