Letter to the Editor

I just sent this letter to the Las Cruces Bulletin:

14250 N Valley Dr
Las Cruces, NM 88007
Oct. 30, 2008

Dear Editor,

I enjoyed your Oct. 24 editorial, “What I don’t like.” As a blogger myself (, I especially enjoyed your comments about blogs.

As a blogger and blog reader, I appreciate the fact that bloggers can communicate directly with their readers, without some pesky editor standing in the way. This has helped to break the stranglehold of the corporate media on our national discourse. All too often, the corporate media serve as propaganda channels for the powers-that-be. Bloggers, and the Internet in general, have provided a much-needed alternative source of information.

By the way, your editorial would have made a great blog post! The Internet is full of every Tom, Dick and Harry spouting their opinions, and your editorial would have fit right in. Unedited spew is the name of the game. After all, who edits the editor?

Sincerely yours,

Gordon Solberg
