Your March 8 front page headline read "Consider yourself lucky if employed." Are you saying that Americans, who have a better than 94 percent chance of being employed, should consider themselves lucky that they have a job? Are you saying that even area residents, who have about a 90 percent chance of being employed, should consider themselves lucky that they have a job?
By that reasoning, if I purchase 94 percent of the tickets in a particular lottery and win, I should consider myself lucky! Statisticians would have a field day ripping that one apart.
Not only is your reasoning faulty, it is also biased. Virtually every day, your newspaper has front page stories about the economy, trying to convince people that the economy is perhaps the worst it has ever been. The fact is that while the economy has its ups and downs, the overwhelming majority of Americans are doing just great and our economy is still the envy of the whole world. We do not need your endless stream of negativism to try to convince us that the opposite is the case.
