Re: “The Year in Pictures 2010

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!

Re: “Gone missing: The country's conscience, brain and heart

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.

Re: “The Tea Party

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

Re: “Reflecting on the late Molly Ivins, her new bio and her crusade against corporatized America

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.

Re: “Glenn Beck

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.

Re: “Margie Ellison

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!
