US?Editor: This kind of letter...


August 30, 1992


Editor: This kind of letter normally would be typed but I had to sell my PC. Normally I don't write to the Editor but the article [Mission Accomplished] in your July 19 magazine concerning the job search of Patrick Morand prompts me to. I was angry that your magazine chose to profile the search of an executive director. I realize Mr. Morand was paid on a different level due to his working for a non-profit company; however, he represents a segment different from the average person looking for a job.

My husband and I cannot exist on one salary. Yet we make too much to qualify for some assistance programs. If I work my daycare costs would be about equal to my share of pay, with taxes coming from my half!

I wish your magazine would more truly represent its readership. This is not the average job search. The average one is of a person who settles for something less in order to put food on the table or keep a roof over their heads. I know -- I'm there.

Editor: I just wanted to write to let you know how much I enjoy the Sun Magazine. Your feature articles are always well written ,, and enjoyable, but my favorite departments are Postmark, Way Back When, This Week and Real Dirt. These sections add character and pizzazz to the magazine. I don't know how many letters you receive complimenting your magazine, but I wanted to take this opportunity to say how much I enjoy it.
