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!
