Valley Viewpoints: Anonymous donation

by Carol Thompson, Reporter

Over the years, I have received many anonymous letters, packages, pictures and phone calls. I’ve been asked by many how I could give credence to anonymity.

The answer is simple. If someone chooses to withhold their identity, it does not negate the message.

Yogi Berra once said, “Never answer an anonymous letter.” I feel there are times I must and this is one of those times.

Regarding the recent article entitled, “The face of welfare isn’t always one of abuse,” you know who you are and I want to be sure you know your letter was passed to the appropriate people and was most helpful. I appreciate that you concealed your identity, however, I could not let this go unacknowledged. Thank you.
