Letters to the Editor

Letter writer resorted to name-calling

I’m amazed that letters such as Carson Farley’s are taken seriously by anyone (“Not voting for Henry for City Council,” Oct. 18 Herald, page A4).

His remarks about a City Council candidate are nothing but name calling. I really thought anyone over the age of 6 had abandoned those tactics. “Small minded” ... “seems to lack progressive intelligence” ... “remarks I’ve heard him make are usually stupid” ... “out of date conservative ideas.” Really?

I have little interest in the council race personally, but I certainly hope that we still have a population that examines candidates a little more thoroughly than was done here.

Then again, maybe I’m out of date.
