ITAKE MY HAT off to our troops fighting for our safety. I went through your entire paper on May 26, and didn't see one article on the troops at war! You'd think with all the space for go-go ads, Viagra, Tattle and negativity, you'd have space for the people who are fighting for their lives and ours.

I understand that people are pumped about our sports teams. I love it, but pages and pages on hockey players getting teeth knocked out by hockey punks, so-called "enforcers" with "shields" on (Dave Schultz must be smiling somewhere) and praising them like they have mortars, grenades, land mines to worry about is a joke.
