Appreciated letter published as-is          Send a link to a friend

I would like to thank the Lincoln Daily News for publishing my letter as written.

Last Wednesday, I read The Courier, which also ran my letter, but some of my sentences had been omitted.

After I compared it with my original, I found that all my statements marking points "as fact" were missing. Mr. Nelson had said in his first editorial he wanted facts. When I wrote this and used the word "fact," he deleted it.

I've been thinking my next letter may deal with freedom of speech. I was only trying to get my point across by making sure that everyone knew the facts.

I also mentioned The Courier and Channel 5 specifically in parts of my letter, and these were left out as well. Why? I did not write anything untrue intentionally. I would think my letter should be left as-is or if he has a problem, I should be called. No phone calls came my way.

One final note: Reader's note: Camp-A-While is with a "C" not a "K." That is a fact!

Thank you.

Sharon Jones
