Letters to the Editor

Letters to the editor are not dead

From Jim Stalker


Regarding Caskey’s Corner from Jan. 23, “Where have all the letters gone?” I agree with “nearly” everything she had to comment on. I would have to disagree with her last comment, “the time of the letter to the editor is dead.”

If that is true, the comics will follow, and finally the obits. After they are gone, there is nothing left. Everything else can be found online.

I would suggest that letters are merely dormant, waiting for a time when common sense returns and this insanity with gadgetry (technology) takes a back seat.

By the way, this is one of those letters she talks about, and not the last ... I can assure you.
