    It appears that ID is truly interested in "reigniting" the letter
    writing section, I offer my perspective. I am in agreement with D.
    Murray in that writers are not interested in a "real time discussion"
    with other writers. Waiting overnight in the old format provided time to
    compose a reply or offering at one's convenience. I agree with R. Algase
    about the desirability of the new format with regards to no limitations
    on content and no censorship as well as the offer to include links to
    other articles and sending the letters directly to the editor for
    posting, as before, which is easier. Like Mr. Murray, I don't "bother
    with it anymore" because of it's cumbersome nature and the "the opinions
    that you pass off as Articles". I only open ID from time to time and
    mostly delete it. Also, the obsession of ID and some contributors to not
    pursue solutions for the benefit of citizens, but narrowly for the
    immigration lobby or their own agendas is wearisome as well as the
    excessive use of name calling and ridicule posing as intellectual
    thought. America does not or should not belong to the special
    interests.

    Citizens want RELIEF from mass legal and illegal immigration/entry.
    Whose concerns should be addressed in equity?
