Many letters to the Editor refer to past correspondence,
available in our archives.

(a) Dear Editor:
Responding to Roger Algase, Esq.'s 12/31/08 letter, I don't
understand how Mr. Algase's letter interprets my criticism of Mr.
Murray's letter being "self-righteous" as one that his letter
does not "respect" my argument. Obama has presented his
Certification of Live Birth (COLB) has proof that he was born in
Hawaii. That document itself states that it's only "prima facie"
evidence of that fact. As we have seen under the definition of
"prima facie," the presumption that the fact exists fails when
evidence* contradicting that fact is presented. Obama has the
burden to come forward with competent* evidence to prove that he
was born in Hawaii. To date, he has failed to* come forward with
that evidence. Moreover, many concerned Americans have provided
the public domain with evidence* which contradicts the COLB's
statement that Obama was born in Hawaii.* They have presented the
following: the existence of the lax Hawaiian law* that existed at
the time Obama was born which allowed parents to* register their
foreign born babies in Hawaii; Obama's grandmother's* statement
that her grandson was born in Kenya and that she was present
during that birth; the Kenya Ambassador to the US, Peter* N.R.O.
Ogego, confirmed on November 6, 2008 during a radio interview* on
WRIF's "Mike In the Morning," that "President-Elect Obama"* was
born in Kenya and that his birth place was already a "well-known"
attraction; the conflicting statements of Obama and his sister
concerning in which Hawaiian hospital he was born; the failure of
any* Hawaiian hospital to confirm that Obama and/or his mother
were present* in any such hospital at the time of Obama's alleged
birth in Honolulu. How can the American people in good faith
conclude that Obama was born in Hawaii which makes him a "natural
born Citizen" and therefore eligible to be President?
