Gary Reeder comes across like a small-time parasite, which I am sure is what he is. However, being the helpful kind of guy I am, I am willing to give Mr. Reeder a little advice: Don't feed on Christ's flock. They already have a lot of claims on their limited incomes. Instead, take a page from Lafayette Ronald Hubbard, a truly world-class shyster, and start your own religion. Then target Hollywood. The place is a roost for much fatter chickens than the neighborhood church can boast. Go pluck them. Besides, they will believe damn near anything. Most of them are Democrats.
The Web site featured in your article (Meet-an-inmate.com) is one of the better sites out there, because the Webmaster (Arlen) will pull ads from women if he receives tips that they have not been honest about their information, or if someone sends him something showing that the lady in question is probably running a scam. And Arlen sends alerts to all his subscribers letting them know that "this lady lied," etc.
I wrote to about 20 different women before I found a lady that would be honest with me. She will be up for parole soon, and we are looking forward to trying to build a life together. So it is possible, but those that are inclined to go this route need to be very cautious and ask direct, pointed questions. If the lady is worth the time and effort, she will be honest in return.
Via e-mail Sorely MissedNo one like her: Thank you for marking the great loss of the Dallas Visual Art Center's Katherine Wagner ("Ciao, Bella," November 23), an irreplaceable advocate for Dallas artists and the person who's done more than any other individual to kick-start my career.
