Letter to the Editor

Thursday, February 7, 2013 by The Press in Opinion

Writers say editorial is grossly insensitive and offensive

To the Editor:

We have subscribed to the East Penn Press (and possibly its forerunners) since we moved here in '84, largely because we felt it was important to support our local community.

But over the past year or so, we have become more and more concerned about the vitriolic right wing editorials that appear under the byline of Deb Palmieri.

She is of course, entitled to her opinions, but I find those opinions to be outrageously far far right wing, and often personally disturbing. Professionally, I find them to be oddly out of place in a small town newspaper.
