Kudos to letter-writers; editor notes one-sided


Saturday, August 12, 2017

I would like to give a big thumbs up to Mark Goddard and Calvin Lacy. Everything they say is spot on and what us so-called “deplorable” people believe. I'm surprised this newspaper even prints what they send in. But like they say, there is usually an editor's note that follows. I have yet to see any editor's comment on any letter written by an individual who makes dire remarks about President Trump. This would lead some people to believe things could be a little one-sided here.

You don't have to like him but Donald Trump is our sitting president. He deserves a chance just like any other president.

Hats off to Mr. Goddard and Mr. Lacy. It’s a pleasure to read their wake-up-and-smell-the-coffee letters in the newspaper. God Bless America.
