Praise for commentary and commentator

3-2-02

Dear Editor:

I have never met Mike Fak. I have had, however, over the past six months or so, the pleasure of reading his commentaries on LDC and life in Lincoln. In fact, I just finished reading his article "Racial Profiling: Letís Look Within."

I find Mr. Fak to be an extremely well-reasoned, articulate and informed person. He raises questions that ought to be raised, he does not moralize, yet he causes his readers to think and look beyond the obvious.

LDN is fortunate to have him as a commentator, and I enjoy his viewpoint. Itís too bad more people outside Lincoln do not have access to his writing.

Sincerely,

Ed Stanfield Sr.

Springfield
