Swiss distraction

Glad you printed the report on Oprah's fight against Swiss racism ("Swiss Apologize to Oprah for Snub," Aug. 10).

Thoughtless people might say that Oprah's longing for a crocodile leather (crocodile?) purse thing costing enough to feed a village for a year was, in itself, a tad disgusting. But hey, what's $38,000 anyhow?

And those Swiss -- you gotta hate 'em. And how much easier it is to snarl at their stupidity than examine our own. Oprah being insulted by a clerk in Geneva (and an Italian clerk at that!) is a nice distraction from the nightmares we generate here at home for anyone who is poor, odd or unwhite.
