Readers’ Letters and opinions
The Daily Star is pleased to provide a forum for debate on a range of subjects, from local cultural activities to international politics.
Dozens, sometimes even hundreds, of letters fall into the editor’s mailbox daily. In order to keep the letters timely, The Daily Star generally produces a special letters section. When the influx of letters is particularly large, extra space is made available accordingly.
If you would like to submit a letter for publication, please remember to include your full name (first and last) and address, including city. The Daily Star typically only publishes letters under 400 words, and these are subject to editing. The Daily Star will not acknowledge unsolicited submissions.

“World stock markets slump on fears over European debt levels”
February 6, 2010
The capitalistic financiers of Europe have got a whole lot invested in America, and they don’t want to lose it. They try to save her so they can save their investments, and they’re trying to get the rest of the world to do the same, so they can save her and continue to make a little money on her.
She thinks she’s their owner, but they’re her owner, and unless they rescue her, she’ll die. But they’re only trying to rescue her to save their own investments. So the quicker they cut her loose, the better. It’s totally artificial for them to support the dollar. If they’d just let the dollar sink down to where it belongs, America would sink with it.
