Dear Editor: Thank you for printing in American Machinist the great articles on the USA's lack of competitiveness. Specifically "That Blur in the Rear view Mirror is China" (September 2006) by Paul Freedenberg and "Report Says U.S. Competitiveness Declining" (October 2006).
They are better written than anything that is in the newspaper since they hit the main problems that the New York socialists, who own our local newspapers and most other media, skirt around.
Someone is telling the truth! How refreshing. I don't carry my local newspaper due to these types of repeated inaccuracies and errors by the NYSE-owned newspapers.
