    Dear Mr. Ammann:
    You really ought to check, double-check, and verify your sources. In your column you have said that my husband has been tossed from his job. He has not. Do you often publish scurrilous, non-researched drivel? You do realize that you run the risk of being sued for libel.
    I certainly will not trust one word that you have written or will ever write.
