Dozens of times a week now, we receive e-mailed letters very similar to the following, which arrived at the newspaper Wednesday, signed by one Mary White on Russell Road, Las Vegas:
"I am disappointed in the media and the RJ for not reporting on all the undercover journal reporting done on Acorn by ordinary citizens," Ms. White opines. "You guys are only interesting in making Obama president and turning our country into communists. I am look thru Sundays paper for any real news like what is reported on Fox News and Glenn Beck and am hugely disappointed. I cannot buy your paper anymore until you decide to really report news. Today, for your information since you are not paying attention, it is reported on Fox News that the senate is introducing legislation to ban all Federal dollars to acorn.
