    I received an interesting letter in the mail today. The letter is from one of those "quickie" land buyers who prey on the ignorant people. I bought a lot which is in a subdivision on Toledo Bend Reservoir on the Texas side 34 years ago. The letter offers me $250 for the residential lot.

Words escape me on how people can...
