Not buy­ing it

Los Angeles Times - - OPINION -

Re “Fam­ily’s strug­gle is all too fa­mil­iar,” Cal­i­for­nia Jour­nal, Aug. 6

Writer Robin Ab­car­ian writes a sym­pa­thetic story about 27-year-old Maguiber Ramos.

But some­times it’s dif­fi­cult to feel sym­pa­thy for a young man who pleaded guilty to be­ing un­der the in­flu­ence of co­caine while his girl­friend was preg­nant.

He is de­ported at that time and then re­turns to fa­ther three more chil­dren. The sym­pa­thetic char­ac­ters are the soon-to-be four chil­dren born into this sit­u­a­tion. Kath­leen Collins Santa Mon­ica
