    Someone should send her a fax/e-mail inviting her to join the debate.

    Just in case you think that it is a Photoshop job and the letter isn't real, here's the link to the newspaper's Web site. And they still haven't fixed the typo in the headline.</a>

    Somewhere out there an ME is reading this and barking for a reporter to get started on this big breaking story.

    Why would a newspaper run a letter like that? Just to make fun of the woman?

    Seriously. I don't understand why that letter would be run on a serious letters page. It's so obviously illogical, the only reason I can see for it is it's pure comedic value, but you don't typically see things on the letters page that are there for their comedic value.

    I'm not sure I would run an obvious joke/prank letter.
    Even though it is hysterically funny.
