My Letter Makes The Paper

I hate to agree with myself, but I do seem to make good sense!

Circle of stupidity

Much was explained by a few articles in your Oct. 23 paper. On one page was a story about our government’s scientists expressing alarm over the manner in which global warming is impacting the arctic. Among other things, they are particularly shocked by the rapid loss of older ice that had been undisturbed for thousands of years.

Then, on another page, you report that the number of Americans believing in global warming has dropped 20 points in three years, even in the face of mounting scientific evidence.

Perhaps our willingness to turn a blind eye to legitimate science, to our own detriment, explains the third article about the huge market of suckers willing to buy bogus, often contaminated products to protect themselves from the flu.

The circle would have been complete if only you had included a story on the many fools who swallowed Glenn Beck’s swill that the flu shot is part of an Obama conspiracy of some sort. We have met the enemy and it is indeed us.
