You did us all a disservice by publishing the letter from Mr. Nelson on Friday. That kind of vitriolic personal attack should have been filtered out. It is exactly what I believe you, Mr. Smith, recently addressed in one of your editorials, stating, as I recall, that that there should a certain level of civility in our public discourse. Then you foster exactly the opposite. Individuals in this community should be able to express their views without the risk of being publicly ridiculed in the fashion which occurred on Friday.
