Letters to the editor – Friday (12-5-08)

Stranger’s gift will give soldier a boost
I was at the CVS on Avalon Drive picking up a few final items for a Christmas box my husband and I were sending to our son. He is in the Army and currently deployed to Iraq. I was looking through the caffeinated gum and other candy at the counter.
The lady in front of me asked me what I needed it for. I explained that David was in Iraq and doing a lot of night missions, and I hoped the caffeine in the candy would keep him awake and alert. She then laid a $20 bill on the counter and said to use it for the purchase. When I told her that she didn’t have to do it, she said that she wanted to and that her husband had also served in the military. With that, she left the store.
To say the least, I was stunned. I don’t know her name, but I hope she reads this because I want to acknowledge her generosity and kindness and say thank you again!

GOP win worth page 1
Regarding Republican Saxby Chambliss’ Senate win in Georgia:
Chambliss’ win was big news. Why did you dwarf it in small print on page two of the (Dec. 3) Salisbury Post? If (Democrat Jim) Martin had won, you would have made it a headline on page one. Your liberal bias disgusts me, as it does scores of your readers. It’s no wonder subscriptions to your paper are decreasing. They will decrease even further if you don’t get out of the ultra-liberal mode you have been in during the entire Obama campaign. Look at what is happening to the New York Times.
