I actually agreed with most of what Gustavo Arellano wrote about The Simpsons. However, here are a few of my own: the Simpsons go to Dr. Nick because they can't afford insurance—just like a lot of Latino families. Lisa is forced to be her own person because her insights and her intellect are never readily recognized by the males in her family unless they are in a bind (a lot like my familiaand myself).

WILL ROGERS NEVER MET YOU!
"I never met a man I didn't like" is code for "I shelter myself from the likes of Joseph Stalin, Adolf Hitler, Charles Manson, Osama bin Ladin . . ." (Greg Stacy's "The Original King of All Media," June 14). The cure for Will Rogers' Pollyanna piddle is simple: you introduce him into the maximum-security ward of a hospital for the criminally insane, with instructions to turn on the charm and talk his way out. Within a few days, he will assure you that he has met quite a few people he didn't like. That's all that need be said about Will Rogers.
