In defense of columnist

By Staff | Dec 1, 2008

To the Editor,

After reading Renae Vander Schaaf's editorial in your Oct. 31 edition, I thought, “she's revealing things a star-struck mainstream media doesn't have the guts to reveal.”

Vander Schaaf's editorial was a venting of frustration toward an electorate captivated with “change.” It was not one of, as another letter-writer called it, “vicious drivel, lies and innuendo.”

On what path is our nation headed when dollars from ethanol trump Joe the plumber's dreams? Is saving trees more important than saving babies? Is there more emphasis on gun control than our nation's security?

I applaud Vander Schaaf and Farm News for standing on their principles.
