Steve Smith, get ahold of yourself

Dear Editor,

In response to Steve Smith’s pragmatic letter ringing out against those pesky, noisy motorcycles: Get a hold of yourself, man! If you are going to cry and moan about an issue, why not put your energy into something worthwhile – being an advocate for people who get beaten, volunteering to help search for the mother and daughter who have been missing for five months, fair trade projects, etc., rather than boo-hooing about “Oh, the horrible noise we will have to encounter for one whole day!”

You want people to stand behind you with a pathetic argument like that? People like you make me embarrassed to be an American because your “issues” with the world end up being so shallow and selfish, it’s no wonder others across the globe think we are all a bunch of spoiled brats. I for one have never been a huge motorcycle fan, but after reading your letter, I am making it a point to cheer on their already approved plans, as well as standing behind them when they joyfully roar through town!

P.S. How about this, you install a muffler on your mouth or go somewhere else?
