A false sense of literacy

Nice piece in the NYT about how there’s a system for chosing ten of the thousands of letters sent daily to ol’Bazaa Obama to actualy reach him:

“We pick messages that are compelling, things people say that, when you read it, you get a chill,” said Mr. Kelleher.

I think a random ten would be better, otherwise Barry’s getting a distorted picture of the literacy and poiniancy of his nation. Better to let him get an idea of the mundanity that every country is mainly composed of.
