Newspeak Forum, a message from Betty
Tommaso states: "My husband [Lewis] and I would like to have someone
from the news media who believes in the rights for citizens of the United

We MUST HAVE ASAP someone who will protect our rights as American citizens.
WHO WILL DO THAT Surely there is a voice out there in America that
will come to our defense! We are awaiting a response to our request!"
