Once Again Ventura Hits the Nail on the Head

RECEIVED Wed., May 31, 2006

Dear Editor,
    Re: El Pueblo Unida [“Letters @ 3am,” May 26]: Once again, Ventura hit the nail squarely on the head. Time and time again, his articles strike a note with me. Not only due to his unique insight and talent with words, but also because I grew up near Lubbock (Petersburg), and his letters on that area's culture cause both smiles and cringes.
    Of particular note, Rusty Ladd is also a native of Petersburg and was the keynote speaker at the dedication of a new cafeteria/computer room at the Lubbock Children's Home, which resulted from a contribution by my late father. To read Rusty's words were most encouraging since I was guilty of stereotyping him into the group of intolerant religious fanatics. Perhaps there is hope after all.
