CATS AREN'T EVIL, YOU ARE
In your response to "Disgraceful" [Feedback, May 20], you stated in speaking of cats: "We do believe them to be generally evil." Well, "we" also believe that newspaper people and particularly in the newsrooms are completely evil and that cats couldn't begin to do half the harm that the media has already done. Here is a list of the most distrusted people in America: lawyers, politicians, the national (liberal) media, etc., and not once was a cat mentioned in this list. It's no wonder you have to give your newspaper away.
I read Rachel Garber's letter concerning the "Tea Baggers" [Feedback, May 20]. All she can do is hurl insults like the epithet "Tea Baggers," call the Tea Party a "fringe group," and intimate that members are racists. I find Tea Party types well within the mainstream. They are serious about leadership, sober about the limitations of a government that spends us all into massive debt, and enthusiastic about the renewal powers inherent in our Constitution of free men.
Unfortunately, Ms. Garber is almost a stereotype of what Tea Party enthusiasts dislike most. She is an arrogant elitist who treasures only her own free speech, thinks playing the race card is an inspired retort, and assigns malign motives to anyone who would upset her smug little world.
Well, I was hoping to keep negativity out of this article ["Civility Now," Naked City, Holly Otterbein, May 20]. But I have many of the same concerns expressed herein. I stepped back from a position of leadership due to disagreements with national leadership on direction and focus. The Coffee Party is still a great place for people who are new to the political process to come out and get involved. I believe it's the duty of every citizen to be informed, and to perform their obligations as citizens in this self-governing nation. The reason that we are losing the sovereignty of the electorate is because people are not involved.
