  1. Mr. Traficant,

    Here are two editorials I recently sent in to the Elyria Chronicle.
    The first has been published. The second is pending.

    That Time of Year

    It’s that time again–when the stores are out asking
    you for that dollar donation. You know what it’s like–
    when you’re in your third store of the day, just stopping
    in for an apple and some sardines and about broke. But
    you find a way, don’t you? Or do you? Maybe you’re
    going to say no. But then you see some lady in a pair
    of shoes with a pair of holes who donates her dollar–
    and then you see her in the parking lot getting into her
    car that looks as though it came from Fonzie’s backyard.
    And then you see some woman in a new pair of heels
    say no to donating. And then you see her in the parking
    lot getting into her new car–parked in some handicap zone.

    Too often it’s the case that those who can afford less
    are left to give more so that others can afford more.
    And when the pot is full and time for the old shoes to
    retire, the old shoes find the pot that she helped fill is
    going more toward the lady in the new heels. And that’s
    a dance I just can’t afford to look at anymore.

    Rebuttal

    Regarding Bob Mayer’s expert analysis on the spending
    and non-spending habits of Americans (3/2/10), I am left
    to wonder about his motive. Is he talking about people
    WITH money who are giving less than people who are
    struggling with their two-or-three part-time jobs and who
    are on their various ways toward less-than-satisfactory
    retirements–or is he talking about how the government
    is handing out HIGHER rewards to those who have put
    less or nothing into the collective poker pot that requires
    nothing more than sitting down at the table? My guess
    is that he his talking about both.
