I find it truly amazing that last Wednesday "One of America's Great Newspapers" thought so little of the fact that "Food-stamp use reached a record 46.7 million people in June" and "the national debt has topped $16 trillion" that it buried these facts in less than 30 words in "Also in the Nation" at the bottom of page A-5.
Sure does make one wonder why the front-page headline read "A Resounding Call for a Second Term"!
Is it only Canadians like me who are aghast at the amount of money Americans are spending on this political campaign? Reading the article that Mitt Romney's presidential campaign had raised at least $100 million in August ("Romney Tops $100M in August," Sept. 5) was mind-boggling enough, but then the small paragraph below it indicated that food stamp use had reached a record 46.7 million people in June and that the national debt had hit $16 trillion.
Seems to me that voting citizens in the United States can elect a president for less money and put $100 million to good use elsewhere.
