Hooligan is a slimy news magazine

Letter to the editor

Posted: Monday, August 28, 2006

I need you to know that if I had a personal subscription to the newspaper, I would most certainly cancel it today.

Sound off on the important issues at

The new insert called Hooligan has gone so far beyond acceptable; it now falls into the class of slimy. Each edition has fallen lower and lower in the sleaze pit. You are putting something into many homes of unsuspecting parents under the pretense of journalism.

While I understand "freedom of speech" and "freedom of the press," I also know that responsibility needs to be in the picture as well. The Empire has failed in its responsibility. Many parents monitor their children's computers to protect them from what you are unsuspectingly delivering to their door. If you want to continue with this "sham" of an insert, at least put it behind a counter and not in the paper or on a stand where kids can just pick it up.

Shame on the Empire.
