Letter to the Editor - Dallas Morning News

The Dallas Morning News published my Letter To The Editor about the new Michael Moore movie but as usual they edited it down to support their viewpoint. By taking out the facts and figures in my original letter supporting the premise that America spends more on health care than any other nation on earth but with diminishing returns they made me sound like an opinionated jerk. OK, so at least they spelled my name right (this time) but it's still sad that our local media can't accept that complementary and alternative therapies have a lot to offer.

Belo covers every new drug and every hospital in the area like it was sacred ground. Strange that a group with roots in the Baptist Church doesn't open their eyes that prayer and spirituality are considered forms of complementary and alternative therapy. I guess they're just kissing up to their advertisers, not an uncommon situation today with declining newspaper readership.
