Ventura's Right – We Did This to Ourselves

RECEIVED Thu., Sept. 22, 2005

Dear Editor,
    I have always enjoyed your point of view, Michael [Ventura], even when I thought you were totally off the mark. On this occasion I couldn't agree with you more [“Letters @ 3am,” Sept. 16]. The America that we all know is, at a quick pace or a slow, coming to its inevitable end. This is not a claim of pending doom (depending on who you are it could be). It's a wake-up call we all need to answer. We did this to ourselves and so we will be the recipients of the rewards. There is only one result of burying our heads for so long – not seeing the pack of wolves with designs on our posteriors. Get ready everyone. When it happens it's going to hurt. Bad.
