Here is a copy of a letter I sent to Theo’s fellow student. and I am sending you a copy:
Subj: Robin, Please forward this to Theo. Thanx! Date: 4/2/2003 10:58:52 AM Eastern Standard Time From: Gww1210 To: RKMiz@hotmail.com Cc: firstname.lastname@example.org, Gww1210
Robin K. Mizzelle at Hotmail dot com!
since I recall *your* email being good, I would like you to please print out a copy of the email I tried to send to Theo Wilson in a comment of an article he wrote: I recall that I got “returned mail,” indicating his email address was bad.
I really enjoy reading all y’alls’ articles (plural possessive of “your articles”) which I receive online via email – even though I am an FSU – not FAMU – alumni, this is still a refreshing Tallahassee touch harkening me back to my college days at FSU.
Since I see the sentence: “For once I agree with President Bush” in your article about virginity, this hints to me you may not always agree with Bush, and therefore I feel you too may benefit from an enlightening point of view about a “Bush” topic, the “New” Gulf War in this case.
I think I sent a copy of my letter to the online post form for “letters to the editor,” but I don’t recall, and I will probably resend.
Thank you for forwarding this to Theo, and please ask him to post his currently active email address. (PS: I would like you to see to it that the editorial dept gets a copy of this so they can consider it for publication.)
(2nd PS: regarding romance, to which you allude in your “virginity article,” I would like to add that, while at FSU, I researched studies on romance and found that the – in my opinion – most or 2nd most important factor was that the man and woman be *similar* – as in “opposites DON’T attract, or – if they do, it doesn’t last. E.g., similar values, interests, hobbies, etc.)
Thanx much, and please pray for me to do well on my case before the Florida Supreme Court: My opponents are “real” lawyers, and they are tough – and I am representing myself!
GW (here’s the letter below)
Subj: Does Bush waste or spend “black blood?” Date: 3/29/2003 5:01:40 PM Eastern Standard Time From: Gww1210 To: email@example.com Cc: Gww1210 Bcc: firstname.lastname@example.org
I enjoyed your article, “Bush wastes black blood,” and I am also displeased that minorities and poor make up a disproportionate amount of the armed forces, but you are wrong on a few points:
1) Bush isn’t fighting for oil. It will no doubt cost much more than it’s worth, and we will end up losing money. (Think about it: Do you really think we could end up somehow “getting free oil” or discounts in greater quantity than the Billions it’s costing the US for war?! – and that doesn’t count the cost in lives.)
2) You say: “When blacks fight for America, we aid in the oppression of other people because America fights for nothing noble.” This is wrong! You just ask any of the oppressed people of Iraq if they enjoy being stepped on by Saddam Hussein – or maybe you think Iraq is a good place to live!
While we can’t fight all the noble battles in resisting oppression, some of them must be priorities, and, while Iraq is not attacking the US, they are nonetheless attacking their own citizens, destabilizing the Middle East by attacking their neighbors, and they DO aid terrorists, some of whom may come to America.
We thought we were “so smart” when we let Adolf Hitler gain power. “It was none of OUR business.” — or — “Hitler isn’t attacking THIS country … YET!”
Bush is protecting the world, which he got permission to do in the UN Resolution 1441, and from the US Congress. (And, it is “morally” right, as indicated by a 76% approval rating for the war by US Citizens.) So, what if a few people changed their minds afterwards, or the UN got sick on its stomach? Should we back out?
America – and many countries – are a strong Allied force, acting under the permission from the UN and God Almighty Himself – and they need to finish their job to protect our world freedoms. However, I do pray that they do not overstep their authority.
I am not defending GW Bush becasue I am a White Republican.
1) I am part Native American (Indian), and I am battling a discrimination incident in court in case number 2D02-4061.
2) My republican membership is NOT getting in the way of my “other” lawsui before the State’s Supreme Court (in case numbers SC03-385, 1D02-4272, and 1D02-5120) asking the state to give Janet Reno the recount that she was due by law, which even Al Gore got! (Do not be misled: Florida’s funny laws let me ask for my “rights” for a recount – even against Reno’s whimsical change of heart! Democrats!)
I hope my opinion was helpful.
