This is a response to letter to the editor of Aug. 10, “Editing altered my letter’s purpose and content.”
I guess the author didn’t like that the Daily Republic edited his letter. Guess what? They edit everything. I have been writing in for 30-plus years; and first off, they never use the headline you submit (I just thought News Editor Brad Stanhope was flexing his intellect). The main part of your letter may be “tightened” up to make sense of it all.
Be happy we just get six days a week because they didn’t get the nickname “Daily Repulsive” for nothing. Some towns just have a once-a-week paper. At least they stopped the slowest news or advertising day (Tuesday). Are you sure you didn’t maybe use a little slang in your title, such as “**** This ****” or the “DR can stick it where the sun don’t shine!”?
You got three choices: cancel and get a refund, get their online subscription or quit crying and fade away.
A loyal but not always happy reader.
