Ap­pre­ci­ates the reg­u­lar writ­ers

Penticton Herald - - LETTERS -

Dear Editor: It was with a morn­ing smile that I read Tom Ish­er­wood’s let­ter re­gard­ing his re­sponse to Glenn Thomp­son’s let­ter tak­ing an un­war­ranted swipe at sev­eral “let­ters to the editor” writ­ers (Her­ald, Oct. 10).

I for one welcome those who are will­ing to stand up for what’s right while tak­ing some of our po­lit­i­cal jack­asses to task for their ir­re­spon­si­ble and asi­nine de­ci­sions!

To Ron Bar­il­laro and El­vena Slump, I say ku­dos for tak­ing the time and en­ergy to bring many of the detri­men­tal de­ci­sions made by those in mu­nic­i­pal, pro­vin­cial and fed­eral gov­ern­ments to light as it is fun­da­men­tally nec­es­sary that in­for­ma­tion re­gard­ing any­thing that af­fects the cit­i­zens of this coun­try in a neg­a­tive way must be brought to the at­ten­tion of all!

When I orig­i­nally read Mr. Thomp­son’s let­ter I was some­what con­fused as, after tak­ing a swipe at and cas­ti­gat­ing the afore­men­tioned writ­ers, he stated that he was brought up with the at­ti­tude that if you can’t say some­thing nice about some­one, say noth­ing at all.

Surely I’m not the only one who can see the irony and hypocrisy in that state­ment. On a sep­a­rate note, I am in to­tal agree­ment with Mark Billes­berger’s let­ter re­gard­ing our bro­ken le­gal sys­tem and am tired of our politi­cians and judges en­abling this scourge to prey on law abid­ing tax­pay­ing cit­i­zens at our ex­pense!
