I am writing to urge you not to approve the proposed Staples merger. Our economy is becoming too dominated by monopolies or near-monopolies, which inevitably have the effect of stifling competition and raising prices for the average consumer. If you really believe in capitalism, please allow competition to flourish by not stacking the deck against smaller companies. Sincerely, Lillian Luksenburg
