Forget John Galt.... who is Ellie Light?

Like a clarion call, the identical language has been popping up in letters to the editor across the nation as a defense of the President:

Today, the president is being attacked as if he’d promised that our problems would wash off in the morning. He never did. It’s time for Americans to realize that governing is hard work, and that a president can’t just wave a magic wand and fix everything.

The Philadelphia Daily News, the San Francisco Examiner, Mansfield (Ohio) News Journal, South Carolina’s Sun News, the Washington Times, a blog at USA Today, Wisconsin’s Sheboygan Press and Stevens Point Journal, Good Times of (of course) Santa Cruz, CA., Daily Breeze in Long Beach, CA., and even The Bangkok Post… all these and more have featured the pennings of one “Ellie Light” who, in each instance, has claimed to be a local resident.

Of course, someone as ubiquitous as Ms. Light must be a networking demon and sure enough, she has her own Facebook profile.

Sweet! We’re so “friending” Ellie.

I have been reading about this. Nobody seems to know... it's apparently not the reporter. The fact that papers don't cross-reference info on their reader submissions is troubling.
