They broadcast a very tiny part, but still it was great to be included. 
I was shocked when the producer called to tell me my letter would be used in
the Mailbag segment.  My entire letter, which complained about the big wet
kiss 60 Minutes gave to Jeff Bezos (Amazon must be a sponsor), also wondered
why not one hard question was asked-- not even about the well-documented
cases of brutal conditions in Amazon's warehouses.  I understand that 60
Minutes does some celebrity pieces as well as some hard news, but this was
in the A block, the part of the show usually reserved for a news story--
instead, it was nothing but adulation and adoration towards Mr. Bezos. Don't
get me wrong-- I have nothing against him, nor against Amazon.  But when I
watch 60 Minutes, as I pointed out in another part of my letter that wasn't
read, I expect journalism, not public relations.
