"I have given up on television news because I don't give a rip about

Michael Jackson. How about reporting news and leave off the gossip about

Michael Jackson. The National Enquirer has it covered just fine.

Jewish heritage

"About the letter to the editor on Christian heritage: Everything you

said is correct except you didn't go back quite far enough. It's

actually the Jewish heritage upon which all of Christianity is based.

"In response to 'I do worry' concerning the Red Cross filtering out

dangerous white blood cells: I would suggest you get on the computer and

go to southeasternbloodcenter.org and look at their information. Whoever

is giving you this information about bad cells is incorrect and must be

propaganda. SCBC is here to stay.

"Just ask an official at the hospital and you will learn that Red Cross

charges more for the blood they sell (which you donate) than the other

company. If you really want to know the truth, visit the web site for

the FDA and search on Red Cross. You will see this quote about the Red
