Letter to the Editor: Column about lies told the truth, better sources exist

Dear editor:

Doug T. Graham’s column in the Sept. 1 edition of The Daily Eastern News was worth reading as to both its insight and narrative content.

The truthfulness of the Palin/Tina Fey business was important.

It is too bad Graham failed to say calmly and firmly that it does matter.

The 9th commandment is involved here. One must wonder if Tina Fey even knows there is a Russia.

Along these lines a helpful book to read is to be found in Booth Library, Neil Postman’s “Amusing Ourselves to Death.”

If you have not the time to read all of it, then read at least its foreword, in which he contrasts the different views of George Orwell and Aldous Huxley.

For the very best insight, read what time’s Greatest Teacher had to say about truth vs. falsehood. His words are recorded in the Bible’s New Testament, Matthew 6: 22-23.

Very truly yours,

Leonidas H. Miller
