It was the letter of an apparently unselfish, compassionate and articulate author. I take issue with the pell mell character of the recommendation however. Five million is ten times the population of Wyoming. Our teachers say we cannot adequately educate the crowds we already have; the police tell us we cannot adequately protect the crowds we already have; the medical profession tells us we cannot adequately cure the crowds we already have; jailers, social workers, homeless advocates and many others tell similar stories. They even say that hunger is rampant in America. God bless these dear people who escape to here. They flee abject conditions, seeking the relative ease that is found here. I would do the same thing. My grandpa did, in 1918. And most of them are damned t good people. Five millions, though. Aren't we at the tipping point in failing our existing population already? And if we. use compassion as our exclusive criterion, should we not allow in the other two billion people who want to live here? Why would we be kind to a mere five million people, and be cruel to the huge majority of others? Maybe we should focus on the underlying problem... which is that these people are forced to come here by corrupt governments, who don't give a damn about the commonweal, the peasant, democracy, or good works of the conscience. I know Mexico well, so will use it as an example. It is vast, fertile, rich in minerals, beautiful, and blessed with bountiful seas aside a long, long coastline. It is a land of huge natural wealth. Huge. Yet the assets are kept from the people, who are mere slaves to the wealthy few who control the country. Democracy is a mere fiction there. Hope lives in the common man, but the hope of the first order is to come to America, and escape the yoke of a Mexico corralled by a few rich, greedy, baldin g patricians. Instead of fighting whirling dervishes in the Sudan, maybe we should go down there and give Mexico back to the people. The battle would last about nine hours...even allowing for daylight savings time. Total Coliforms and E.Coli Ba eria I~ I,D '1 ~ ' General Mineral andI oo'~ ~ L.

They are a terrible lot. They are benefitted also because the ones who risk it all to come to America are the most determined, strongest, forward- looking of all. These hardy souls would be the agents of change in a society that is deprived and enslaved, but they come here instead, and send money home to the still-enslaved ones. Only to be collected by the greedy, balding ones, referenced above. Isn't it rather clear that these people need their countries back? Mexico has never had a real revolution, as their world has never revolved. They have had only revolt after bloody revolt. That said, let's not lose sight of the fact that five million is 10 times the population of Wyoming. Let's think this over. Bill Pettersen A JULIAN CHRISTMAS Written by Lynnette Finch, Christmas 1996 Julian winter is here, blustering clear, swirling gold leaves here and there. Crisp the air into the night, logs warmed by wood stove firelight. On a recent crispy eve, we donned our hats, then retrieved jackets downy to thwart the cold, headed for Julian - that Town of gold. There- with curbs soon overflowing, stood with family, friends, all glowing at the sparkling majesty of the Julian Christmas Tree. Branches swaying oh so gently, held creations made so quaintly by the children of the town, by all ages of the town. Streets were filled with people singing, Carols still so full of meaning Mugs of chocolate, cider brew, warmed the hands and hearts so true. Soon a cheer rose from the crowd, young and old just"oohed" and "ahhed". The tree was lit with star above, a two story symbol of community love. We drank in all the Christmas splendor, the magic thoughtfulness can render. A precious gift, this tree so tall, each night to be seen, to be valued by all. (Thank You to all who decorate The Tree each year. It is so appreciated by all who live here or who come to visit at Christmas time!)
