I check modbee.com throughout the day and pay special attention to the "High Five" most e-mailed stories. I noticed recently that a letter to the editor titled "Is bin Laden giving to Obama?" was on that list. I hope it was being e-mailed around because people are simply amused by its ignorance.
If it is being e-mailed in a serious manner, I have a better understanding as to why Modesto would be on the "Ten Most Miserable" cities list. The writer of that letter should serve as a reminder of how important education is. He tried to use the Bush (Karl Rove) tactic of fear, while fueling racial and religious intolerance. No wonder the writer is threatened by Barack Obama; he represents the exact opposite.
