Letter to the Editor: Letter of ironies

Dear Editor:
Irony 1: We are told not to judge all Muslims by the actions of a few lunatics.
But, on the other hand, we are also encouraged to judge all gun owners by the actions of a few lunatics.
How is that supposed to work?
Irony 2: The Food Stamp Program, administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, is proud to be distributing this new year the greatest amount of free meals and food stamps ever to 47 million people as of the most recent figures available in 2013.
Meanwhile, the National Park Service, administered by the U.S. Department of the Interior, asks us to “Please do not feed the animals.”
Their stated reason for the policy is because “The animals will grow dependent on handouts and will not learn to take care of themselves.”
