To the editor:
Thank you for a positive response to a very negative piece of
distorted journalism. I was so disappointed at the slant Kelly chose
for this piece. I hope that we can use this as positive motivation

Thanks for getting a quick and thoughtful response to the NPR
Your assessment -- "The shot she fired was aimed far from our
local citizens and politicians, and even beyond our state politics.
McEvers fired her shot at Washington, D.C., and used her hometown of
Lincoln to criticize the policies of our national government and how
this has affected the Midwest" -- was well put!
I only quibble, and quibble vociferously, about your stance on the
concealed carry law -- this is a step way back to the Old West days
of carrying around firearms.
In short -- very well-written! ALSO, I am certain that Ms.
McEvers did not intend for her article be deemed to be one of
negativism about her hometown, rather an insight into the problems
of small-town America in these very difficult times.
