Dear Natalie,

You are to be commended for resisting the compelling urge to overdose on alliteration. Your headline could have been,

"Freshly Formed Feasibility Foundation Fundraiser."

I applaud your professional and journalistic restraint.

With a Smile,
Alamo Ron

Dear Ron,

We have missed your one-liner oxymorons.

There are many words that start with an F that can be used in your talented self-concellation of reality. We fully appreciate the entertainment you provide and the joy of response to such entertainment.

Neighborhoods have switched from concepts of community to wine tasting with a special interest in all neighbors' creativity. You are a shining star among neighbors' interests. "Here's to Alamo Ron" is our salute with glasses raise high.

Entertain us, Ron, and allow us to applaud you,

Alamo Ron has indeed done us a service by making statements without definition that could be quotations from various political sources. We can appreciate that very short, simple display of such statements in the context of our discussions makes each of us consider what is the meaning within each statement. Certainly, as is typical of political commentary to be oxymorons based on some lack of definition of words, we should look at such commentary to make sure it is understandable and meaningful.

In the past 7 years, the volume of untruth and deceptive commentary by our President and his administration makes each us sensitive to such definition and distrustful of the contents. Certainly, let's provoke Alamo Ron to more simplicity and display of the hollow, meaningless and self-cancelling nature of political commentary.

Ah, yes, Alamo Ron, is it feasible that such continued commentary could cause study of political intent?

I have attended most of the meetings dealing with Alamo incorporation. There are certainly Alamo citizens who do not agree with incorporation. I found the initial analyzation very interesting including the comparisons with Moraga, Lafayette and Clayton. The overall package endorsed, with fairly significant enthusiasm, a future for Alamo. However, the package appeared to significantly under estimate the people/staff and money that will be required. Those Alamo citizens, particularly those having lived in Alamo for many years, clearly are not having their concerns addressed to answer those questions describing the real benefits of incorporation outside of the hurt feelings of those who feel snubbed by County officials
