Mothers for the Military
As a military spouse, I was so happy
to see our First Lady on the cover.
I appreciate her work and passion
for service and am very grateful for
her efforts on behalf of military
families. Michelle Obama proves
there is still dignity and grace in public service.

Correction Property tax rates for
the five featured cities in our story
“Best Places 2011: The Good Life for
Less” were overstated by a factor of
10. The correct rates—expressed as a
percentage of assessed home value—
are as follows: Gainesville, Georgia,
0.776%; Portland, Maine, 1.435%;
Tulsa, Oklahoma, 0.877%; Winchester,
Virginia, 0.553%; Wenatchee,
Washington, 1.052% (source:
Sperling’s Best Places).
I really enjoyed the interview with
Michelle Obama and Jill Biden. I can
truly say I better understand both
women and their agendas because
of it. They are—without a doubt—
beautiful, classy, funny, professional,
Safeguarding Social Security
Kudos for a well-reasoned article in
“It’s Time to Protect Social Security.”
Unless the program is modified, it
will face serious issues. Please
advocate for responsible change
that does not harm today’s seniors.
