Handmacher's Letter To the Editor,

Posted in Letter to the Editor

I think I may be eligible for a refund! For what, let me explain. I recently gave my annual donation to the Lanesboro Community Chest a fine organization. But a letter to the editor in last week's Journal now has me concerned that perhaps I am not part of this community and probably should not be eligible to contribute to the Community Chest. Why? Because I may be an "outsider."

I say this because for starters, I have been here less than five years and I own a business related to tourism! But, what is funny is that I pay my taxes, I pay my phone bill (phew, I'm listed in the phone book, maybe I'm saved), and I pay my city utilities such that I have water that comes out of my faucet when I turn it on. I obviously need some clarification on the criteria to be an "outsider."

So I am wondering if you, the letter writers, wouldn't mind communicating to me the criteria for what makes one an "outsider." If indeed I fall in this category, maybe I could wear a hat of a special color to make sure I am recognized. Hmmm, this might be viewed as discrimination, perhaps not. I am deeply concerned about this, as I may be eligible to get that refund from the Community Chest. Just give me a ring, I am in the book!

P.S. I don't look good in hats.

I was very troubled by an editorial a few issues back about a possible war with Iraq. It invoked up the specter of Vietnam as if our experience there ought to be rationale for not confronting Iraq and its murderous regime.

I can .....

Jesse Ventura inherited a surplus when he was elected Governor. In 1998, voters were willing to gamble with that surplus and opted for excitement and entertainment in the governor's office. We've had four years of roller coaster fun and lost the surp .....
