DFL should’ve taken a Christmas break

To the Editor:

The Christmas/New Year holidays are the time of the year when people are celebrating the wonder of the season and wishing everyone a joyous and positive year to come. Everyone is full of good cheer and happy to pass it on to whomever they meet.

The Dec. 25 Record followed though with that cheer. The front page carried a heartwarming story of the wonderful Christmas gift to the community by Charlie’s Pizza. Other pages were full of colorful ads from businesses wishing everyone a Merry Christmas. It gave me a really good feeling.

Unfortunately, the letters to the editor were a complete letdown. One DFL letter attacked Rep. Mike LeMieur with a very disparaging ‘poem.” Another negatively attacked the GOP. This was so out of place on Christmas Day when we celebrate one of the holiest days of the year.

The Jan. 1 Record  was no better with two more disgusting letters attacking LeMieur and the Republicans. It would’ve added to the joy of the season if the high road and been taken and letters suspended for two weeks. Instead, they took the low road and continued with attack letters full of half-truths and misrepresentations. — Clara Kedrowski, Little Falls
