To the editor:
Debra Seaman is a skilled and accomplished website
designer. She has graciously offered her professional services pro
bono to design a site of which my hometown could be proud.
Clearly the suspicion of her offer represents the very worst of
small-town thinking. It is a new world and a much larger one than
Lincoln's city fathers acknowledge. People come to our community
unnoticed every day by way of the official website. In that respect,
I am certain the chamber of commerce would have an opinion regarding
the hermetic view that Ms. Seaman's offer is some Trojan horse.
I implore the city website committee to reconsider their offhand
rejection of this grand display of civic pride. If you do not
understand the process of website design and maintenance, please
take a moment to educate yourselves so that you might make a
decision all of us could endorse.
