NEW CASTLE —
Editor, The News:
I distinctly remember the big red “F” on my first junior high research paper.
I was terrified of the subsequent parent-teacher meeting but took it as a learning experience. I learned the importance of research, footnotes and quotations.
In many letters to the editor, I am reminded of that meeting and in tribute to Sister Marie Rosaire, I scribe her infamous big red “F” on them.
John Magee writes, “Obama has been trampling on (the Bill of Rights and Constitution) quite a bit since his election” and “losing our Social Security benefits” without citation or examples.
Philip Granato writes, “This country is a Christian nation and has been blessed by God” again without citation. Perhaps Granato fails any reference is because God is not mentioned in the Constitution or Bill of Rights.
What legal document is Mr. Granato referring to? Elected officials swear to uphold the Constitution not to uphold the Bible, Koran or Tanakh.
The coup de gras is this paper’s own political cartoon characterizing President Obama apologizing for the recent Mideast turmoil. This misdirection is a proven lie by White House transcripts and even Fox News on Sept. 14. The News’ credibility has been tarnished.
These ill-informed writers cannot be taken seriously and make themselves look foolish.
