  1. Mr. Traficant,Here are two editorials I recently sent in to the Elyria Chronicle.The first has been published. The second is pending. That Time of YearIt’s that time again–when the stores are out askingyou for that dollar donation. You know what it’s like–when you’re in your third store of the day, just stoppingin for an apple and some sardines and about broke. Butyou find a way, don’t you? Or do you? Maybe you’regoing to say no. But then you see some lady in a pairof shoes with a pair of holes who donates her dollar–and then you see her in the parking lot getting into hercar that looks as though it came from Fonzie’s backyard.And then you see some woman in a new pair of heelssay no to donating. And then you see her in the parkinglot getting into her new car–parked in some handicap zone.Too often it’s the case that those who can afford lessare left to give more so that others can afford more.And when the pot is full and time for the old shoes toretire, the old shoes find the pot that she helped fill isgoing more toward the lady in the new heels. And that’sa dance I just can’t afford to look at anymore.Bob MayerAvon Lake RebuttalRegarding Bob Mayer’s expert analysis on the spendingand non-spending habits of Americans (3/2/10), I am leftto wonder about his motive. Is he talking about peopleWITH money who are giving less than people who arestruggling with their two-or-three part-time jobs and whoare on their various ways toward less-than-satisfactoryretirements–or is he talking about how the governmentis handing out HIGHER rewards to those who have putless or nothing into the collective poker pot that requiresnothing more than sitting down at the table? My guessis that he his talking about both.Bob MayerBox 144Avon Lake, OH 44012440/323-2846
