Letter to the editor: Rant was off-base

Tuesday, April 2, 2013 - 12:01 am

I was really amazed at a statement in the Rant column that stated that the churches around town were having free meals to gain membership. How oblivious can a person be? How can they not see or be aware of what is going on around them?

Do they not realize how many people are without jobs and have been looking for employment for months? That people are losing their homes, that food banks have long lines and are running out of food? For heaven’s sake, wake up!
