Too many rude drivers cause problems on roads To the editor: I don't know if it is true that Hagerstown is the fattest city in Maryland, but I do think we are vying for the position of rudest drivers in the USA. I recently was at a traffic light at an intersection. As I waited for my light to change, I could hear sirens coming and sure enough, an ambulance was racing toward the intersection, or at least he was trying to, but the driver in front of him refused to pull over.

On the 200th anniversary of the ratification of the U.S. Constitution an illustrated book of the Constitution was printed. Famous author James Michener wrote a foreword. Here is a partial quote: "Fifty-five typical American citizens met and argued for 127 days during a ferociously hot Philadelphia summer and produced one of the magisterial documents of world history. Almost without being aware of their great achievement, they fashioned a nearly perfect instrument of government. " These men wrote into the Constitution their high- minded hopes and dreams for a new kind of government of the people, by the people and for the people.

What would immigrant ancestors advise you to do? To the editor: Do you know your immigrant forebears? My grandmother came from Latvia pursuing the classic American dream; real opportunity. My grandfather, at the age of 16, fled forced conscription into the Russian army. Both arrived around the turn of the 20th century. My in-laws escaped the Nazis in 1939. They told me of a welcoming America and quick, easily attainable citizenship. The undocumented alien immigrants of today come to escape difficult circumstances, too, but find no path to American citizenship.
