Reading my copy of today’s USA Today I ran across a very appropriate Letter to the Editor, which I want to share with you. You will likely agree with the point and recognize this as a perfect example of the double standards currently floating around our country.


My first thought in hearing about the firing of Juan Williams by NPR was how out of whack our country is right now (“Williams’ firing from NPR restarts Muslim debate,” News, Friday).

One man speaks about Muslims and gets fired; another man says about his own grandmother: “She is a typical white person, who, if she sees somebody on the street that she doesn’t know, well there’s a reaction that’s in our experiences that won’t go away and can sometimes come out in the wrong way.”

A typical white person? And we made the man who said it president. Go figure.

What your Commander finds interesting is the fact that we failed to see this factual comparison anywhere in the main-stream media coverage of the Williams debacle. And some people have the gall to say that the media is not biased just makes me shake my head. Obviously what is good for the goose is not good for the gander.
