I am responding to a letter that appeared in the January 19, 2012 issue of the Macon County News. The letter was written by Dr. Ed Morris, wherein he unveiled a startling set of facts that should have been published in our local newspapers before the last election. Dr. Morris implies that the news reporters should have had this information “in hand”, but didn’t act on it.
In my opinion, newspapers are the most essential form of raising public awareness. Ink on paper lasts for ages. A radio news report is dissipated in the wind. TV news is not much more than a flicker of light.
