Groups need common sense

---- — Editor:

I recently received a junk mail letter from The Nature Conservancy of Minnesota. They wanted me to send $15 and, in turn, they would send me an umbrella.

Why don’t they take the money and postage of all those letters and the price of the umbrellas like the one they were going to send me and use it instead of trying to get my $15?

I’ve never understood coupons, either. They have to be printed and mailed, all extra costs. Why not just reduce the price of the item by a few cents?

I sure wish someone had a little common sense.
