LTE: Reader has concerens on a national level


I wish to voice my opinion on two matters.

First, I find the actions of the government and population of New York City unconsionable for even considering, for a moment, the erection of a Mosque anywhere near ground zero. What could they be thinking? The same religious group, that killed thousands of innocent people, erecting a victory monument at the very site of the atrocity is unthinkable. And it may well be done, in the name of diversity. After all, diversity made this nation great, but will it also be our downfall?

Second, why is there so much difficulty in understanding the word illegal. Illegal, in my limited understanding of the english language, means contrary to the law, or an activity or action which does not comply with, or is in violation of, passed legislation (law). Thus, illegal alien means an alien whose undocumented presence, in this or any country, is contrary to the law, or is in violation of passed legislation. I am by no means a racist, though some after reading this may presume so, but the law is law, and law, in what ever country or state you choose is law. Of what consequence is it,  those who want to work and those who do not wish to perform the work? Does that change the law? I might suggest some constitutional education or perhaps some lessons in english. Ahh, but then we would all understand the word illegal.

Should the date for The World's Largest Garage Sale be changed from the third weekend in July to sometime in October to take advantage of cooler weather like we had this past weekend?

No. It's better in the summer cause kids are out of school.
Yes. More shoppers would come during nice fall weather.
Either time is fine.
