Letter to the editor by Jerry Segovis

The people of Egypt have spoken and with their peaceful demonstrations have shown the world that the power of their unity is stronger than any government dictator. They are working toward a government where the people can decide their future with free elections.

The country is in terrible financial condition after many years of a corrupt government where there are only two classes of people. The rich and well connected who control every business and the affairs of the country and the poor who serve the rich and live on the discarded scraps of their employers.

Does any of this sound familiar, maybe the people of the United States can learn a lesson from the demonstrations in Egypt.
