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

"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

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
Cross: "17 years of serious and persistent violations of blood safety
