[SIC] LETTER OF THE WEEK! PROUD WIFE AND MOTHER

Dear Mr. Zaitchik,

I recently read your interesting commentary regarding Senator John McCain. As a Republican, I am deeply disheartened with the choice of Senator McCain for president. Senator McCain's animosity towards Russia is dangerous to say the least. My husband flew F4-s in Vietnam. He was also the Senior US Air Attache in Moscow from 1979 to 1981. While there, we traveled from deep Siberia to central Asia with the KGB right behind us. My son, Jim Jatras, is representing Bishop Artemije of Kosovo with regard to trying to reverse President Bush's recognition of an independent Kosovo that bequeaths Serbia's Jerusalem to jihadist war criminals such as Hashim Thaci and Agim Ceku.

Best regards,

Stella

Dear Ms. Stella, Lief the Minnesota Liberal replies, "I don’t know why you’re writing a letter about Bishops and Vietnam and so on. Don’t you know there’s a war on in Iraq? Right now, lady! Not yesterday, not 30 years ago, but RIGHT NOW. There are people dying, lady, and you’re sitting here talking about some Bishop who flew an F-4 in Kosovo. Wake up, before it’s too late!"

BY THE NUMBERS

Hi, the Exile,

A bit of a late note, but sorry, I am slow…Your headline article for Issue #284 goes "20 Reasons why we're embarrassed to be Americans", and then in the body of the text you shamelessly give 25 reasons! Which brings me to #26 - you Americans suck at math!!

Cheers,

Petos

Dear Mr. Petos, Leif the Minnesota Liberal replies, "How can you sit there and worry about math when there’s a war going on, man? Don’t you get it? People are dying, Petos! How, I ask, can I reach these readers?"

RUG MUNCHER

Hi Mark,

Thanks for the encomium to the wall carpet! I first became acquainted with them when I was a university exchange student in Ukraine in 1992. We exchange students lived in a former dormitory for visiting Communist Party officials. We hosted a big party at a restaurant for our Ukrainian friends on our last night in the country. We covered all of

the food and drink so everyone became massively, ragingly drunk. I vaguely remember people barfing on the floor, in the bushes outside, everywhere. Anyhow, one of the exchange students threw up while he was passed out on his bed. The sheets, the floor and the wall carpet were covered in puke. He didn't know the customary way to deal with such a situation so he stuffed the sheets and the wall carpet in a big bag for the convenience of the babushkas who maintained the dorm. I hope the carpet was cleanable.

Regards,

Mark

Dear Mr. Mark, Leif the Liberal replies, "How can you sit here and talk about wall carpets and drinking and – ew!—puke!—when the world faces so many serious problems today? Don’t you know there’s a war going on? Huh, man? Has it ever occurred to you that maybe, just maybe, there are some things more important to mankind than your little barfing stories? People are dying, man! Think about that for a minute, if you can handle it."

SADR ‘N’ LONELY

Gary,

Perhaps you should leave the rabid Anti-Americanism to Vlad? The Moqtada Al Sadr and the Iranians aren't half the brilliant masterminds you think they are. Al Sadr is in an dramatically worse situation than he was a couple years ago. If he was so strong, and the government so weak, why are they exerting pressure on him to disband his militia or else not be allowed in the elections? Furthermore, Al Sadr has said he would disband it if Ayatollah Sistani told him to. That seems to me like he is looking for an excuse. Read this article by the New York Times. It might prove enlightening.
