The introductory comments were in complete agreement with my views, but I really want to thank you for and compliment you on the well chosen collection of photos.
I wish so much I had a photo from a time almost thirty years ago when my son and I (at that time college-selecting) took a road trip to the University of Illinois and were surprised to be overtaken on the interstate by a truck rig carrying a house! We couldn't believe our eyes and the "picture" is indelibly imprinted on my memory!
First, thank you, Independent, for publishing this perfectly constructed, emotionally honest, and factually sound article by the "perfect pitch" Hal Crowther. I am so grateful for those few who can so perfectly articulate my frustration and sense of futility as I watch and listen to those with no sense of history, geography, or intellectual curiosity.

This is such a superbly synthesized conceptualization of the forces threatening the foundations of our society, our state and our once revered way of life that any further comment I might make would bleach its vividness! Thank you for your efforts and especially for reintroducing "epistemophobia" to my vocabulary. Perfect! CME
Gratitude is an inadequate response to this gripping column about an iconic, truth-telling journalist I was fortunate enough to see speak once (and have never gotten over it). Thank you, Mr. Crowther, for this and for mentioning twice another intelligent, but honest, man, Paul Krugman. I loved the column and am passing it on to my children, now middle-aged, who saw Molly Ivins with me.
Oops! I slipped on my hero' name. Apologies to the author and The Independent!
What a bracing article to wake up to! As usual, Mr. Crowder expresses everything I perceive in a clear, cogent, eloquent and energetic style. I have always combed The Independent for his columns - rare now. Thanks for this one! I'm sending it to all my thinking friends.
Margie Ellison is one of the finest people I have known here in Chatham County (Pittsboro). I am shattered to here of her death. I spoke with her at length not many weeks ago and can see her warm, smiling face in front of me right now. What a loss to our community!
