An entrepreneur called me the other day for some brainstorming. It seems that he discovered his company had been billing a client half of what he should have been billed. This client had been difficult in the past and the entrepreneur wasn't looking forward to dealing with him.

I feel compelled to write this letter regarding the "Tossed paper causes incident at Canyon" article (April 1).
I believe that this article ("Tossed paper causes incident at Canyon," published April 1) is way overblown.
Brian Charles' front page article (April 1) regarding the "tossed paper controversy" at Canyon High School raises more questions than the incident itself.

Regarding the "Tossed paper causes incident at Canyon" story in The Signal April 1: This is just one more example of the parenting-induced and encouraged hypersensitivity to even the least of the "slings and arrows of outrageous fortune."
Editor's note: The following letter was addressed to Signal Publisher Ian Lamont.

Your daily look at late-breaking news, upcoming events and the stories that will be talked about today:
Fifty years ago, President Lyndon B. Johnson delivered his famous "War on Poverty" speech, purposing "to cure it and, above all, to prevent it." Unfortunately, like our other wars in the last half-century, this one has not lived up to its noble ideals.

We all know that perception often influences our decisions, yet we catch ourselves and become reminded that what we perceive isn't always what's really going on. With the constant barrage of information available in today's 24/7 world, it's important to not get caught up in the day-to-day market volatility and news headlines.
