H Council Thank You's Valley elvettes, also known as To Ron and Lidia Ambulance Service,' Council's Girl Scoutsl Wilson and crew from make me a right wing angel. I've never been called m] angel, proba- bly for good reason, but thanks anyway. Regardless, right wing/ left wing, right or wrong, it's clear that right is right. Once again let the readers decide what they want to read and say. Anything else is just plain wrong. Dennis M. Healy Indian Valley We must dedicate our- selves to education to succeed Dear Editor, How is this govern- ment going to "create" jobs in an environment of economic depression and loss of manufactur- ing? Yes, they can pro- vide some people with temporary jobs during a construction project. Permanent employ- ment in the foreseeable future, in my opinion, will be nearly impossible to achieve if one doesn't already have a job. So what is to happen to these people? Do they spend their remaining years on welfare? Our kids must understand that the days of noncha- lance regarding careers are over. K they want families, homes and etc. in the future; they need academic or trade related education. They need to work hard in school so as to be accepted in col- lege/trade school. The famous historian of the Roman Empire, Edward Gibbon, stated that the chronic debase- ment of its currency was the one of main causes of the collapse of the Roman Empire. Please under- stand that the devalua- t.ion of our currency con- tributes to the rise in oil prices and anything else that is imported• Our wealth, that we have spent lifetimes accumu- Ia't!ng, is :' disappearing. Crashing real' estate and blue chip financial sec- tor stock prices tell us that now is the time to demonstrate outrage for the way government mis- handled our economy. Editor's explanation for "censorship" was lacking, wrong Dear Editor, Ok, this letter is'clearly directed to you, per your demand, so that excuse is out of the way. It's not about who has what view from which side. it's about right and wrong. In your response to Carol Healy your unsub- stantiated allegation amounts to a personal attack when you said, "Such language has no place in polite dia- logue..." and failed to support your contention by explaining to readers what was actually said or to define what "such language" means. You didn't seem to have a problem when Rex Rammell in his Guest Opinion on December 3, when he referred to "Frustrated and angry rioters...,'. I was one of those to whom he was referring and I saw no riots anywhere in the USA. That was offensive to all who attended the Tea Parties. There didn't seem to be a problem either with what appeared to be personal attacks on Sheriff Green in the November 25 issue. When you substitute your own words or views, removing the words of the writer, you are remov- ing the !st Amendment right to free speech (and thought), and flaunting the freedom of the press as Mrs. Healy stated. Several personal con- tacts, phone calls, and emails have been received supporting Mrs. Healy's letter and lam- basting your response. Many threatened to can- cel their Adams County Record subscriptions and to boycott its adver- tisers. I urged them not to do so, but to voice their opinions to The Record instead No need to thank me.
