Dear Weekly Editor:
It seems to me that as our country gets more populated it has created a concern to the natives of USA. No matter what has been program in this time of our life USA is still attracting all countries. It is sad to know that many countries if it was run right would be as good as the USA and the people of those countries could stay home.
