Sturm nails it

Dear Editor:

Melanie Sturm is a journalistic wizard!

Congratulations, Aspen Times. You are indeed fortunate to have an opinion writer that represents everything that the “mainstream, regime sponsored media” is lacking.

Your newspaper’s readership is fortunate, as well, in having a reliable source of information that’s well qualified, articulate, willing and able to inform the American public about our disgraceful federal government by simply “telling it like it is!”

Melanie Sturm is a journalistic wizard doing what many other columnists fail to do – she supports her views with facts.

Her most recent column, “Road to hell paved with irony and big government,” is a perfect example of her thoroughness, her logic, and her devout dedication in bringing to light the ineptness and the deception of the government that is suppose to be “leading” not “deceiving” its citizens.

I did find an obvious omission; however, it’s really an interesting, unique aspect. In this column, Melanie actually managed to enlighten us on the gruesome failures our federal government without specifically referring to the “enabling perpetrator” – not once was the “over-publicized and under-qualified” Obama even mentioned! That is a journalistic “coup” in that his name seems to be plastered everywhere. Well, I must assume that this was simply a “skillful oversight” on her part, since none of us need to be reminded that he is largely responsible for this nation’s dreadful condition.

On behalf of a multitude of concerned citizens, thank you, Melanie Sturm, for your service to our country!

God bless America!
