Letter to the Editor

Money foolishness not confined to the sports world

Friday, January 4, 2013

I usually agree with your editorials. This one is "wow" ["Jocks on the Bread Line," 12/27].

Your second to last paragraph is advice for everyone and should be taught in school. Foolishness with money is not just confined to the sporting world, but also the lives of celebrities who live in a world that thrives on it. Remember how Ed McMahon lost his mansion due to foreclosure? In our culture, people of all ages look up to those people and look for the next get-rich trick so they too can live like star athletes and celebrities. Those people's finances end up in the toilet and wonder why the world is against them.

Thanks for your wonderful editorial.
