I have been busily preparing a letter to the editor of the Rocket-Miner, in response to a woman who wrote a letter about illegal immigrants and people wanting handouts abusing Social Security. I finally got it written out by hand, double spaced and signed and will submit it tomorrow when I go to the paper to pay for my subscription. Hopefully, the young woman will read it and find out that she was badly misinformed...if not, I tried! Unfortunately, in America today, people's contempt for government prior to investigation of the actual facts has become the rule in our political discourse.
After I finished the letter, I happened upon a quote from A. A. Milne which I would like to share with you. I read it in The Week magazine and here it is: "The third-rate mind is only happy when it is thinking with the majority. The second-rate mind is only happy when it is thinking with the minority. A first-rate mind is only happy when it is thinking." I aspire to be a first-rate mind...only time will tell! Anyway, the quote seemed to fit the situation perfectly!
