There was a terrific letter to the editor recently published in The Free Press:
Like Robin Hood, Backwards-
Like the men I served with in World War II, I fought willingly and proudly for my country. We were defending the land of opportunity where any boy could grow up to be president and where anyone who worked hard could provide for his family. The America I fought for was where every kid was guaranteed a good public education. No matter how poor his family, a child could get an education, work hard, and make something of himself.
I don’t see that today. Today families work hard, they try to save and they do everything right, but they can’t get ahead. Sometimes they can’t even get by.
