Let It Be, Letters BC
WHENEVER the world gets too ridiculous to take seriously, like when the 2022 Russian version of Hitler tries to turn today’s Ukraine into Poland 1939, I cheer myself up by printing a few letters from the editor, an idea stolen from the 70s & 80s American National Lampoon satirical magazine.
