Safeguarding Those Widely Regarded as Corrupt

RECEIVED Fri., May 29, 2009

Dear Editor,
    As always, the Chronicle confined itself to yelling from a corner to safeguard individuals of institutions widely regarded as corrupt. Your carefully edited "article" on Nathaniel Sanders II pushed dirt higher on his sepulture, avoiding the real side of this tragedy [“Nathaniel and Li'l Nate,” News, May 29]. I hope his killing highlights the constant infiltration into government of people who demand everything and get protection from egotistical traitors who provide it. What's left is a dangerous Negro for advocates to support, some of whom still believe in their marvelous contributions to U.S. culture, without which arts would be restricted to an accordionist, a fiddler, and a bunch of drunks stiff-jumping on their feet at a cantina waiting for a call on the next country to invade.
