Columnist Sturm calls it like she sees it

Dear Editor:

Our compliments to Melanie Sturm for her honest discussion of the U.S. economy and how the politicians distort the truth (“Leadership running on empty as economy tanks,” June 9, 2011, The Aspen Times).

Our economy uses and needs energy produced from oil, natural gas and coal. Are politicians receiving benefits from lobbyists of foreign nations so the USA buys from them and blocks production of USA sources of energy? This also prevents the creation of a substantial amount of U.S. jobs and a stronger U.S. dollar.

Thank you, Melanie.

Bob and Susan Donatelli
