Newsweek Has Some Zany Readers

Above is a letter sent to Newsweek from a reader. Newsweek’s Tumblr called it “Paranoia News Salad,” which is an apt description. From what we can make out, basically everything is going to kill us, but (maybe?) Jesus will save everyone if we’re willing to let him do that. Nice guy, that Jesus.

FishbowlNY’s favorite part of the letter is definitely the use of colored markers. That shows dedication to the craft. Also, it brightens things up a bit. Somehow “HORRID” doesn’t seem so horrible in yellow, and “Suffering” comes off as quite enjoyable in a light pink.
