GRAND FORKS -- Recent letters to the Herald criticizing headline writers for not pumping up the Iraq war news are both absurd and comical.

The writers apparently don't read beyond the headlines. I don't object to a few heads such as, "Iraq victory in sight" or "Light at the end of the tunnel now glowing in Iraq," if it would appease these complainers, and if the headlines remotely reflected the content of accurate stories.

The fact is that this immoral and hopeless war has gone on way too long; and if the America press has failed us, it is because we weren't provided enough information to avoid the debacle the Bush administration has engineered for us over too many years.

I want to thank the Herald for printing letters reflecting all points of view (including my own) and for striving for fairness and accuracy, even when the government makes such reporting difficult or impossible.
