Letter to the Editor

Bigger issues

Paso RoblesSeptember 12, 2013 

I read several recent letters to the editor, and saw just how petty and stupid people really can be. Complaining about comic strips? Really? There are more important issues facing the human race, such as being on the brink of World War III, diseases killing thousands in underdeveloped countries, starvation and overpopulation, pollution of the air and water, etc.

People need to wake up to reality and get their collective heads out of the sand.

The Middle East is a hotbed of turbulence and a powder keg ready to explode, and all people can worry about is keeping up with what iPhone is available or what comic strips are in the newspaper. Can humanity get any worse?

The Tribune is pleased to provide this opportunity to share information, experiences and observations about what's in the news. Some of the comments may be reprinted elsewhere in the site or in the newspaper. We encourage lively, open debate on the issues of the day, and ask that you refrain from profanity, hate speech, personal comments and remarks that are off point. Thank you for taking the time to offer your thoughts.
