Re: “Get the facts straight” (letter, 8-14).
The writer replied to a column about our national debt. He says “get the facts straight” about debt facts, then directs our attention to “usgovernmentspending.com.” The author of this site, Christopher Chantrill, is a self-proclaimed conservative, and the site is loaded up with all kinds of extreme references and bias.
I recommend people look up facts on neutral sources like the http://www.cbo.gov/ or Wikipedia. Don’t pawn off self-promotion and spin as factual, please.
