Letter to the Editor

Letter writer makes a(nother) pledge

Tuesday, August 31, 2004

To the editor:

As many who know me can attest, I am a contrarian by nature. Thus, I am becoming more and more agitated by the Southeast Missourian editorial staff's authoritarian stance. The staff is always telling us what we need or don't need to say, think, do, and so forth.

So I have made an admittedly stubborn decision. From this day forward I will always do the opposite of what the Southeast Missourian editorial staff suggests, even if I agree with its editorial opinion.

The only exception to this pledge will occur if the staff seems to completely lose its collective mind and recommends Southeast Missourian subscription cancellations.
