Someone Take The Wheel

Dear Mr. Okrent/Mr. Bovino,

I had assumed that your paper would indeed be commenting on Mr. Kerry's campaign for President of the United States of America. I think that much is a given. What would be appreciated however, would be a direct reply, either publicly or privately, to my email and the points I made therein.

Kind regards,

Dear Ms. Dent,

I assure you I will be writing about The Times's coverage of Senator Kerry at some point between now and the election in November.

Yours sincerely,

Dear Mr. Okrent,

The recent article by David Halbfinger is just plain pathetic. It's one thing to report on a month-long vacation by a sitting president. It's another to purposefully try to make a candidate look weak, thus playing into his opponent's hands, by criticizing how he just can't cut it on the campaign trail.

Most reasonable people understand how grueling campaign work is. Most reasonable people also understand the odds of falling off a snowboard.

Quit trying to frame the candidate's personality and focus on the issues. That is a reporter's job after all.

Rip out the table
we need room to move
in a life unstable
you're so easily amused
anywhere you hang
yourself is home
throw in a tape, fix the tone

The windows are dirty let's hope it rains
add another newspaper
something to do with my change
I see we're fighting again
In some fucking land
throw in another tape man

Someone take the wheel
and I don't know where we're going
anybody say what you feel
everybody's sad, but nobody's showing
