I would like to thank the staff of The Frederick News-Post, and in particular Allen Etzler, for their professionalism. Recently several comments of mine were deleted from the comment section of The News-Post that I felt did not violate the outlined standards. Mr. Etzler politely, efficiently and professionally addressed my concerns.
Tempers are flaring in this country. There are deep, ideological divisions fueling anger. Folks on each side of the spectrum have the legitimate right to have their beliefs honored and heard. Middle ground must be sought. Open, honest, civil and intellectually sound dialogue is critically needed. Thanks to The News-Post for providing a forum, and let us hope all participants respect the privilege.
