Citizens smarter than given credit for

To the Editor:

I am writing in response to the “Biased Area News Coverage” guest editorial. The writer came across as someone who feels our local citizenry isn’t smart enough; that they need to be “educated.”

She also attacks the Record  as being “slanted.” Then she goes on to say the Record doesn’t live up to its mission statement. She continues by complaining that her “Peace and Diversity” fair wasn’t covered by the media.

Finally, she refers to her pending lawsuit, as if it were a good thing to sue. I believe the writer is bullying not only the local government, but also the citizens.

I believe there is less peace because of her complaining, her lawsuit and as far as diversity goes, how about celebrating “unity” instead of diversity. — Virginia M. Pederson, Little Falls
