Dear NFL

To Whom It May Concern:

As a New York Giants football fan, last Sunday night was rough for me. One of the most difficult parts of that frustrating and tough loss to the rival Dallas Cowboys, was two terrible calls by the officials. On Thursday, the NFL told the team that they did make mistakes in important calls in the game. This only adds to the frustration of a very imperfect game.

Dear Morgan & Morgan Law Firm

To Whom It May Concern:

I see your firm works with class action suits. While I don’t really understand the law enough to know if this really qualifies – and it probably doesn’t and/or doesn’t appeal to your interest because there’s no monetary compensation the be gotten by this, I’d like to request you consider a suit against “news” websites that post opinion in a misleading matter, where it can be easily mistaken for fact.

Dear SB Nation

To Whom It May Concern:sb nation logo

I have an idea: since the sports world lacks female voices even though there are a lot of lady fans, why don’ you employ a woman (me) to have a SB Nation connected blog about NFL Survivor pools? C’mon, it’ll be fun!

I just went on an awesome vacation to Peru. There are a lot of stray dogs there, and it made me have an idea I think you should consider…

I’m writing to try to encourage you not to end net neutrality. Unfortunately, because I’m not a lobbyist and have no money to line your pockets with, my request will likely be ignored.

Dear Co-workers

To Whichever Co-workers need the refresher course,

I’ve covered this topic before… about how soda can explode when you change their temperature dramatically, about how you will forget that you put your soda in the freezer (or in today’s case, moved it from the freezer to the fridge)… this morning’s lengthy cleanup made me feel I should send another reminder.

Dear Governor Dayton

Dear Governor Dayton,

While Not Many Americans Make Minimum Wage, Those Who Do Suffer For It

While Not Many Americans Make Minimum Wage, Those Who Do Suffer For It

While I appreciate reading about your bill to increase minimum wage, I am disturbed by the fact that your bill will take two years to fully come to fruition.

 

Unfortunately, our business society is aimed at having the lowest expenditures possible at the expense of our own people.
The minimum wage function is broken. If it kept up with inflation, it would currently be $10.10 per hour. But the federal government has gone corrupt, paid off by the corporations to give up on the little guys.

Even $9.50 an hour is arguably not a living wage. My hope is that all states or the federal government will raise the minimum wage to over $10 per hour and see food stamp and welfare recipient enrollment numbers drop, at the expense of $1.50 menu  prices at McDonald’s, $12-priced jeans at Wal-Mart and, perhaps, a million dollars less in salary for CEOs.

But regardless of all that, I thank you for your attempt to help and request that you expedite the increase to be required sooner, like by the end of this calendar year.

Your residents and non-residents alike will thank you and appreciate the true public service!

Sincerely,

Rachel L. Arbeit
