I just read your August 6, 2009, The Paper. I wanted to comment on the Letters to the Editor concerning a few people who were angry about The Quantrill Story, published June 25th. I read the article and I can’t understand why they were all so angry. It was an article about a person in the Civil War. The War did happen and there were many unsavory people who benefited from the war. The story is well written and filled with information on many people. I realize, even if they don’t, that writing the article did not mean you supported who Quantrill was and what he did. The letters were full of hate and intolerance, especially the letter from Josh Roberts. People who accuse other people of intolerance are practicing that which they accuse others of. I look forward to your paper whenever I can find it. You can’t please everyone, but anyone with any intelligence can read the front page stories and know it isn’t personal against their beliefs. Please keep on writing and publishing.

Letters to the Editor are always welcome.
Please limit your submission to 250 words. As always, we reserve the right to edit for length, content, and good taste.
We prefer submittals via email. Please send to:
firstname.lastname@example.org but will accept faxed copies and regular mail. We will, however, screech mightily if and when we receive them because, being lazy, we don’t like to have to retype Letters to the Editor or Press Releases. With email it’s a lot quicker and easier to edit.
If you have an item for The Social Butterfly, you can email that to: TheSocialButterfly@cox.net
Readers are expected to comport themselves at all times as ladies and gentlemen. Seeing as how that's all that reads The Paper, that should be easy.
We require your name, address, and phone number so we can verify the letter. We will not, however, publish your address or phone number.
