Keep re­sponses civil and in the public fo­rum

Richmond Times-Dispatch - - EDITORIAL PAGE -

EDITOR, TIMES-DIS­PATCH:

A cou­ple of months ago, an opin­ion let­ter I wrote to the editor was pub­lished. As ex­pected, I re­ceived a cou­ple of re­sponses agree­ing with what I said. But what floored me was re­ceiv­ing one sent to my home ad­dress that was hos­tile to what I had writ­ten. This per­son had gone to the trou­ble of find­ing my home ad­dress and my full name and sent it to my private haven from the world.

This wo­man en­tered my private space by send­ing her let­ter to my home. That is com­pletely wrong and so pa­thetic. I would rec­om­mend to this per­son that she never do any­thing so de­plorable again — but I don’t think that would stop her.

If she wants to dis­agree with me the next time, I ask that she please do so in a let­ter ad­dressed to Editor, Times-Dis­patch so the world can see what she writes.

M. J. STIDHAM. CUM­BER­LAND.
