(a) Dear Editor:

Responding to 11/6/09 Letters, the T. Krishnamurthy letter should

not be "frustrated" because some dwell on the macro aspects of

entry which really have more impact than the micro parameters.

The problems of mass entry and Mexican irredentism can and is

changing US and effects all citizens while the "nuts and bolts"

issues affect some citizens and others. Until the former are

addressed, streamlining the latter only adds to the numbers. This

is how the irresponsible, pro-entry crowd hurts a limited,

selective entry by forcing so many resources to be allocated to

the huge abuses of the past and present. This is where much, if

not most, of the blame should be for the present "mess" and lax

policies. Even if one is an atheist, the Bible can teach us more

than merely perspectives on entry, such as the need for wisdom

(Prov. 3: 13-35) in resolving difficult problems and not narrow

views (I Cor. 12:14-22 & II Chron. 30:8), excluding wisdom from

any person or source. Those who dislike "Bible thumping" seem to

have more need. My vote for the most profound, relevant letters

here would be those of Mary and P. Keenan. Many letters have

"bent over backwards" to glean some truths from R. Yang letters

which has been hard when our history and the Bible are

alternately praised and then trashed, the displayed illiteracy

and the "Everything I say can be substantiated by my own opinion"

arrogant attitude and insults. The experiment in polyglot

multiculturalism is not going well with the Islamic shooting at

the TX military base, the FBI shooting of a radical in Detroit,

and the "honor" killing of a daughter by her father in AZ in

addition to the Latino separatist movement with the drugs,

thefts, killings, etc
