"Levee is dry"
By Mike Sawyer


October 04, 2008

Dear Editor,

With foreclosure and bankruptcy becoming shameful words to many of us, I'm in shock to discover that on September 30 our Federal contracting office awarded a $40,000 contract to paint an oil portrait with frame included of the Department of Commerce Secretary Guitierrez.

Wasn't September 29, the real Black Monday for our US Commerce? This portrait caption should be a field day for our editorial cartoonist.

When will Americans accept our" levee is dry?" No more American pie and political portraits.
