What the homeless need are homes, not ten tons of additional pavement!” Headline: Maryland Agrees to 
Tobacco Settlement Response: “Well, that’s all we

Hoy a Campana Solidaria Pro 
Centroamerica Response: “I was disgusted with 
the sloppy spelling for [this] article. There were so many typos, I couldn’t understand a word.”
