Dear Mr. Coppola,
There are many business-oriented newspapers in this state, but yours is the only one I know of that is discerning enough to carry Adele Ferguson's column. That's a shame, because those other papers' readers are missing out on some of the most insightful political commentary available anywhere.
Few columnists have the guts to defend the institution of slavery and bemoan the sorry plight of "top shelf blacks" who were forced into freedom, but Mrs Ferguson does. She is also the only columnist who fully comprehends the threat Somali pirates pose to the Washing State Ferry System.
Sure, sometimes she's wrong, but even then, she rebounds with a column that is invariably a work of pure genius. Such was the case when she admitted that she was wrong when she predicted that Obama would nominate "a black" for his first Supreme Court appointment. Here's what Mrs. Ferguson had to say after he picked Sonia Sotomayor instead:
I was wrong there. I still don’t understand who President Obama was pleasing when he picked a white Jewish woman instead. He didn’t know her. Somebody had to press her case. I’d give anything to know who and the identities of his inner circle.There's that genius I was writing about. While everyone else slavishly repeated Obama's spin that Sotomayor is an Hispanic Catholic, only Mrs. Ferguson had the guts to inform us that the newest justice is actually a white Jew who was forced onto us by the secret cabal of Jews who control Obama.
As the editor and publisher of a newspaper that carries her column, that kind of reporting must make you very proud.
