The president is out of touch


To the Editor:

I am so sorry that President Obama is having a rainy vacation. But I am glad that we’re getting some long-awaited rain here in the Boston area. Why? My lawn looks like scorched earth, and I have been hesitant to increase my water bill by running my hose and sprinkler. And, I do not have one of those luxurious underground lawn sprinkling systems that would keep my yard looking like a presidential golf course. Yes, Mr. President, some of us do have to worry about trivial matters like water bills and property taxes. You are out of touch with your populace.
