It’s a new year, but the same old garbage

Letter to the Editor

It’s a new year but the same old garbage. The lack of civility in our country is appalling. Yellow Journalism has taken over the media, political parties trash each other, and the truth is nowhere to be found. When was the last time your heard someone say, “If you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all”? I was brought up to say “sir” and “ma’am” to strangers and elders. Curse words were never used in public or around the girls or women.

It really doesn’t matter if you’re liberal, conservative, nonpartisan, or whoever: Filthy language not acceptable. Freedom of the Press and Freedom of Speech was never intended to allow what the Supreme Court Justices says is OK! It is not OK with most Americans. Remember, a half truth is a whole lie.
