Letter to the Editor: Mixed message on Opinion page

Thanks for your opinion piece calling us to and#8220;Help Improve Our Community Dialogue.and#8221; (July 15) I couldn’t agree more. But I was disturbed to look right under your piece and see a snide, personal rebuttal in and#8220;Grasshopper Soup”.

The original column may have been and#8220;just horsing around”, but the follow-up was not. It doesn’t seem like a good idea for a columnist to use his dedicated space to rebut and belittle a concerned citizen who writes to disagree with his tone. Is it fair to ask Bob Sweigert to use and#8220;My Turnand#8221; or some other venue to try to one-up anyone who writes in to disagree with him?
