Subject: Ms. O'Hair's misspelling...

Perhaps one reason for the prevalent misspelling of her name, may it never be forgotten, is being overlooked. Perhaps many people are not simply victims of witch-hunt style propaganda, but are simply spelling her name as they have commonly seen Madeline (like the children's book) and O'Hare (like the airport) spelled.
This seems less like a vast conspiracy and more like the whinings of insecure people with a severe paranoia problem. I'm sorry you feel that your life means nothing in the grand scheme of things...I feel much the same way about you. Perhaps if you spent less time criticizing others for their beliefs and trying desperately to promote the beliefs of a person who needed a serious checkup from the neck-up you'd see a little more clearly.
I understand and appreciate your right to think and feel as you believe and have no quarrells with your expression of such. I just hate stupidity.
Here I was, simply looking for a piece of information, and I get lambasted as a conspirator and moron for a simple mispelling. Nice.
I hope ms. o'hayer (oops) is resting comfortably in Texas. She's got a hot spikey seat 'o' love waiting for her right next to Marylin Manson, Hitler, and Oral Roberts.
Jesus you people need help. Oh, sorry, guess you won't find any help there.
Peace to you.
I think 20 million letters to the FCC could reasonably be seen as some sort of conspiracy. Interestingly, almost all of them misspell her name as indicated: "Madeline Murray O'Hare."
Check out the Official FCC Statement debunking this one. (Is that a pink radio with boxing gloves, or what?)
Visualize whirled peas.
