Letter headline was offensivePublished 10:22am Thursday, April 4, 2013
In reference to my letter to the editor of March 25, I referred to several policies of the Barack Obama administration that I was strongly opposed to. I used the term “abomination” to describe these policies. When I read my letter in the paper, I was surprised to see how it was headed: “Democrats are an abomination.”
I just wanted to clarify that I did not come up with this offensive heading nor do I agree with it. My apologies to anyone who might have been offended by it. I am not in the business of name calling but, as a citizen, I believe we all have the right to challenge our government’s policies that we disagree with.
I hope in the future, the Tribune would be more sensible in the words they choose to head the letters that readers send in.
Editor’s note: Our mistake. We changed the headline online.
