The Question Answers Itself




Wow. It must’ve been a slow news week if you are reduced to running nearly a full page of content to a “story” about a local guy trying to sell an Obama business card for hundreds of dollars (“The Change Card,” Jan. 22).

This is the sort of item that might warrant a one-sentence mention in a column like the “Town Dandy,” but really, almost an entire page? AND a photo? Why are you encouraging shallow opportunists like this? It’s heartening that no one seems to be interested in buying his little (and I do mean little) piece of history.
