Don't Support
Pro-Arab NPR

I read with interest and confusion your
editorial on National Public Radio ("A
Better Way To Fix It", March 14, page
31). I find it incredulous that you urge
your readership to continue to support
this pro-Arab slanted media.
Your idea of continuing to send finan-
cial support and then asking them to
change their bias away from anti-Israel to
neutral appears to be backwards. To coin
an old cliche, it is putting the cart before
the horse. Perhaps, it would be preferable
to consider giving them some support
after they have shown a willingness and
evidence to report fair and unbiased
news.
In the meantime, there are literally
hundreds of proven worthy Jewish chari-
ties that need and deserve our support
before this unworthy and despicable
organization.

Story About Hair

Debra B. Darvick's article and sidebar
("Dissecting A Mitzvah," March 14,
page 78) were thoughtful and thought-
provoking, doing justice to a book with
the same qualities.
She need not worry in the future
about her outsider status if this is indica-
tive of her work.

A New Spin,
But Same End

The Bush administration's Middle East
road map" is the same play with differ-
ent actors ("Road Block," March 21,
page 29). If performed, the last act will
also be the same.
Formerly, British Prime Minister
Neville Chamberlain appeased the
Germans with a piece of Czechoslovakia.
Presently, President George W Bush
expects to appease the Arabs with a piece
of Israel.
