(a) Dear Editor:
Yesterday, I ordered a pair of Bass Weejuns online, from For those not familiar, they're shoes. I've worn
Weejuns since I was in college in the 1960's. I guess that makes
me an old guy. My size, 14D, reflects my physical stature, I'm a
big guy. It is difficult to find my size in local shoe stores.
Online shopping gives me a bigger selection and the ease of never
leaving home, with it or without it. My American Express Card is
my key to convenience and I can drink a beer in my underwear when
I shop. No parking hassles, no cranky sales clerks, no screaming
kids at the mall. What makes all this convenience possible?
Modern technology; computers, efficient software programs, credit
card payment and efficient and well-designed business models,
designed by creative entrepenuers with a profit motive, concerned
with providing quick, effiecient service to their customers. It
works. I'll receive my shoes today, as confirmed by the link to
UPS tracking provided me by Endless in an email this morning. How
thoughtful. So what about the L-1A extension I sent for filing
with USCIS yesterday? I bundled up a ream of paper, included a
paper check for the filing fee, packed it into a Federal Express
envelope (US mail is too unreliable), picked up by a gas-guzzling
truck. I'll wait two to three weeks for a paper fee receipt, if I
receive it. I'll never know how or who to contact if I don't. My
check will process through the manual banking system. My case
will fall between the cracks of the USCIS Service Center, the
wife's EAD is expiring, and eventually I will receive a
nonsensical boiler-plate RFE in the mail inquiring as to
"managerial duties".  And president Obama wants government-run
health care. Get in line.
David D. Murray, Esq.   Newport Beach, CA

(b) Dear Editor:
Once again, I am postponing my ID letters break, this time to
express my deepest regret and condolences at the death of one of
the greatest Americans in modern history, Senator Edward Kennedy.
As we all know, there would have been no 1965 immigration reform
act without him. and America might still be tied up with the 1924
racist immigration quota system favoring white immigrants from
Western Europe, based on a US census conducted in 1890! Senator
Kennedy fought right up until the end to preserve the spirit of
the 1965 law, especially by vigorously supporting reform measures
aimed at making it easier for millions of Latino and Asian
immigrants to obtain legal status and become full-fledged members
of American society. Now, the cause of immigration reform will be
in the hands of pygmies, compared to this giant. Senator Kennedy
will be long remembered and profoundly missed
Roger Algase, Esq. New York, NY

(c) Dear Editor:
Children in Central and South America have to grow up maybe as
soon as they are five years old (see 08/24/09 ID comment).
Poverty, hunger and sometime better life that they may get to see
on TV makes them want to come here.  Most of these children are
on the streets of their countries fending for whatever they can
and to do this trip is a slim hope they take.  There is no
welfare compensation nor children protective laws per se.  These
children deal with a raw reality of life in poverty with no hope.
