Ellie Light - Mystery Woman

There has been a strange string of letters to the editor appearing in papers around the nation, claiming to be written by someone named "Ellie Light."  The letter is in support of President Obama.  While the text of the letter is identical in every newspaper, the hometown of "Ellie Light" changes depending upon the location of the paper in which it is published.  According to the Mudville Gazette blog (don't you love that name?), the letter has appeared in 60 papers and counting.

The Cleveland Plain Dealer is investigating this story.  How is it that the same letter supporting the President and his policies is published in so many papers?  I don't know about you, but I've sent letters to the editor before, and  it's not that easy to have them published.  Even in smaller local papers.  And if they do get published, the final version usually bears a faint resemblance to the original after they get done editing it down to size.  Odd, isn't it, that all of these papers printed the same letter verbatim?

Hopefully, the investigation will continue and we'll find out the true source of this letter.  Until then, it's one more indication that the media, both local and national, is an undiscerning mouthpiece for a political agenda.
