I had to respond to Karen F. Gustafson's ridiculous letter (March 19, 2003). She claims that the protesters of war, animal rights, PETA and other issues are paid. Let me clarify something for you, Karen: I, along with many family members and friends, am a protester of the war, for animal rights and for women's issues. None of us are paid. We attend rallies, write letters and donate money. (That's right, we give money.)
How dare you belittle my efforts at making this world a better place?
