Mr. Barack Obama, President of the USA
1600 Pennsylvania Ave. NW
Washington, DC 20500

Dear Mr. Obama:

I want to take this opportunity to commend you for asking for a reserve or escrow from BP for
potential losses as a result of the disaster in the Gulf.

I am a 78-year-old male who grew up during the depression in the 1930's. We were taught then that you only purchased something if you had the money to pay for it. I recall when I was ten years old, I asked my father for $10.00 to purchase a bicycle, and I was informed that I could have it when I had the money to pay for it. I know some would say, well he's old fashioned, and maybe so, but debt is serious business and should only be used under proper underwriting standards.

We are headed toward an economic disaster, which will cause our country more problems if we do not get a handle on our national debt problem.

Please think how irresponsible BP has been and then relate it to the disaster we may cause this country with excessive, overstepped, debt standards. I refer to both public and personal debt. Reductions in underwriting standards at Freddie Mac and Fanny Mae are prime examples as to why we are in the financial problems we are today.

Now, as a citizen of the USA, I would ask that you and our Congress set up a reserve or escrow, which can not be used except to reduce US debt within the next five years, and that funds going into Social Security and Medicare not be touched except for the purpose for which they were established. The disaster of 12 to 13 TRILLION-DOLLAR DEBTS that has been amassed should be addressed now in an aggressive manner. If you think it is good fiscal policy to require BP to reserve or escrow then is it not also good for the USA to do the same to reduce our national debt?

I know you have probably heard this before, but as a very concerned citizen I feel obligated for the good of our wonderful country and to let the CEO of our country know how I feel. We must not leave this great burden to our Children and Grandchildren.

Respectfully yours,

Richard R. Haynes

After the story on Feb. 1st about Marion Lutz from EARS published just below the godly story of Suncoast Humane Society my faith in this paper has seriously been impaired. That was in the poorest of taste BUT it probably sold you a lot of papers. Can I now assume that every person that is arrested will have their employment published as well as a story about them or do you just do that to struggling non-profits? I noticed you didn't mention in that article written by Steven Smith the cops came Marion's house at 12:30 A.M. to arrest her and haul her off to jail. That seems to be an important factor. You also forgot to mention that the neighbor, on Nov. 22nd when this happened, decided not to press charges. That was probably because he hit her too. Interesting that he is a retired cop. I'm thinking the Brotherhood is still going strong. Next time you write a story that could potentially hurt people and non-profits you might want to do a bit more investigating. This was a totally biased story. Are you part of the Brotherhood too Mr. Smith?
