Dear Editor,
    Michael Ventura's continuing articles “An Arbitrary Nation,” [“Letters at 3am,” July 26] rank with Thomas Paine's “Common Sense” pamphlet that the Founding Fathers of America hailed. This column should be read to all Americans once a year, especially starting with school children. Brilliant, poignant, and right on the money for a confused America. If we lose the essence of early America, it won't be Michael Ventura's fault.
