Letters to editor logo - ONLINE ONLY - Copy

I just want to commend you for the excellent opinion piece you included on page A4 of the July 11 edition of the paper.

I find it disturbing that local politics has taken on a more acrimonious tone in the past couple of years. I think we are suffering from a loss of civility in our public dialogue. What I really appreciated was the fact that you pointed out how social media is feeding this “disease in the public mind.”

Print media is accountable for what is written and published. There is no accountability in social media. My biggest fear is that when people hear enough lies, they can no longer identify what is truth. Thank you for the service you provide to our community.

John Puryear,
