Democracy Is a Means of Addressing Problems, Not an End in Itself

This otherwise marvelous article contains one flaw. For anyone living or working in Latin America, it is extremely jarring to read the term "American" used to refer only to the United States.Latin Americans are themselves guilty in this regard. It is especially pathetic to see ads promoting their "American" products which are clearly from the United States. If a US product is better than a local one, fine, by all means say so. But it is sad to see these other Americans engaged in this misnoming. Dorothy Barnhouse, Managua Letters are welcome. Only a selection can be published, subject to condensation, and none acknowledged. Please address them to "Readers Write," One Norway St., Boston, MA 02115.
