Carl, I read the article in Cityview [We the People, "Still burning,"
April 19]. Looks great! We're still living in the days of Prohibition.
It's funny that alcohol is legal. They can dish it out, but they sure
can't take it. Iowa won't let me get a license or register my vehicles
because of child support debts. (My daughter requires expensive
operations at $5,000 a pop). It's hard to keep up. Texas garnishes my
wages automatically no matter where I live. Iowa chooses not to work
with me and acts like a hysterical child.

It's sad. I can't seem to make my 'tech home base" here... there's
also discrimination based on sexual orientation. It never ends. I do
great work, so why the harassment? I guess I can be a fry cook in Iowa
while I am here.
