Letter to Editor: Bush, Brits, and Ned Lamont

Picking on Letters to the Editor of AMNY has been a hobby of mine for the past 2 years. It is almost too easy, sort of like getting someone to laugh at a picture of a couple of midgets playing basketball. For those of you not living in the New York area, AMNY is a free newspaper put out by Newsday, which should pay people to read their paper, which to some extent - they have.

"Free Newspapers" you say?

It is not all that it cracks up to be, ask anyone. First of all, Metro and AMNY's free papers find their way onto the subway tracks and cause fires. They can also be found all over the stations, on the street, and in trashcans. Second of all - they all suck. You get what you pay for with both Metro and AMNY.

From today's paper, I found a gem of a letter written by the typical tin foil hat wearing AMNY reader (not named Herb Stark). E.L. Corey from the Bronx declares that Bush (ie - Karl Rove) had the Brits arrest the 24 terror suspects last week to "blunt Lamont's victory over Lieberman". With no help from whitey, cops, Jeeewwwssss, voting machines, crossover voters, and corporate media - Bush managed to steal Lamont's thunder and get a Democratic Senator ahead in the polls? I told you he was a uniter and not a divider.

I think E.L. needs to put down the blunts. Also, he suggests that the arrests are phooey (not his exact words). You can click on the image above to view it in larger, paranoid detail.
