I am writing in support of your new columnist Dan Shannon.
The perspective that he provides is complete with factual information backed up by original sources. I understand that there may be readers that get upset by the point of view that he provides. However, if one does not like the message, is it right to “shoot the messenger”?
It is vitally important that media such as the Courier-Herald allow their readers to use their logical thinking skills to reason through ideas rather than silence and remove ideas such as those presented in Mr. Shannon’s column. It is imperative that citizens are provided with views that they may not agree with.
