Re: “For 2012, we can solve the Electoral College problem” (TNT, 6-7).

Someone should inform Bob Keeler that the U.S. is a republic, not a democracy. This is exactly how our founders intended our republic to function. It is a sad commentary that no one at The News Tribune knew this article was irrelevant to the facts. The News Tribune has become a blog instead of a “newspaper.” SAD!
