Writer disagrees with national columnist Franken

Mr Franken, 

After reading your editorial in the 9 April Coastal Courier, I decided to check your musings via the internet (Google, Wikipedia, etc) and found many half-truths.  Let me count the ways – 1 Pinocchio, 2 Pinocchio, 3 Pinocchio, 4… .

Me thinks ‘Sir’ Charles Barkley was correct in his recent commentary, ““I truly believe in my heart most White people and Black people are awesome people, but we’re so stupid following our politicians, whether they’re Republicans or Democrats, and their only job is, ‘Hey, let’s make these people not like each other. We don’t live in their neighborhoods, we all got money, let’s make the whites and Blacks not like each other, let’s make rich people and poor people not like each other, let’s scramble the middle class.’ I truly believe that in my heart.”  Well said Sir Charles.

I believe the same holds true for most of the media Sir Charles.  The days of “Yes Virginia there is a Santa Claus” are over.

Verify, then trust, then re-verify again.

Just my 2 cents again.
