Good morning, Mr. Farah. Thanks for your refreshingly clear and decisive piece opposing a federally mandated minimum wage ["Obama the cheapskate"]. I remember debating the economics of this in high-school competition during the 1960s, but do not recall ever hearing then an argument that now clinches every issue for me: If the U.S. Constitution does not require it, the federal government has no authority to do it.

I very much agree with your campaign to confront office-holders with a direct personal letter and a copy of the Constitution; I will support you.

Behind you all the way,

Stevan Horning
