Unfortunately the letter to the editor, this past week, re: President Obama, starts out with a false statement—“it’s not true I believe everything I read on the Internet.” He has shown us in his original letter and in this letter that he really does believe every lie that is written on the Internet.

Editor:

How many times do we read an article in the paper and become so infuriated we toss the paper across the room in disgust? “How can those idiots do that?” we say to no one in particular. Two minutes later, we start on the sports page. We forget what upset us and move on with our lives.
