Letter Submission

To submit a letter to the editor, please email us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Letters must contain the author's name, hometown (state as well, if not in New Hampshire) and phone number, but the number will not be published. We do not run anonymous letters. Local issues get priority, as do local writers. We encourage writers to keep letters to no more than 400 words, but will accept longer letters to be run on a space-available basis. Letters may be edited for spelling, grammar, punctuation and legal concerns.

 

I can certainly hat your views but I don't have to hate you, too

To The Daily Sun,

As a full-time reader and occasional contributor, I was dismayed by a few of last week's letters. There were several personal attacks and, one letter so angry — so hateful — that it actually sickened me.
I think that The Daily Sun is a wonderful forum for political debate. Most of the contributions are thoughtful and, at least, somewhat respectful. There are, however, certain factions that have absolutely no tolerance for any opinion other than their own. These individuals attack not only someone's opinions, but see no problem in personal, vicious assaults. Anyone who disagrees with them can find themselves caught in a crossfire. Many of these letters are dominated by CAPITALIZATION. I guess this is the equivalent of YELLING. Daily Sun readers are, by definition, READERS. We can figure out your emphasis.
Now to quote Bill Clinton — listen to this: I absolutely defend anyone's right to express their views I may not agree with them, but have the utmost respect for freedom of speech. I may not see the necessity of owning an assault weapon, but I support the Second Amendment. As a card carrying member of the LEFT (sorry), I voted for Barack Hussein Obama — twice. I may hate your views, but I don't hate you. Hasn't our country advanced beyond the High Noon — blow each other away mentality?
