Freedom of speech

We got it, get it and keep on getting it Mr. Ackerman. You really, really seem to have a personal vendetta directed at Bruce Conklin. The Constitution gives you the right to voice that position … freely. In this case, literally freely.

As the publisher of the local newspaper, you can apparently devote as much ink and column space as you wish to your pet cause. Without paying a penny. If I or any other citizen wanted to vent with like space, The Union would sell us the column inches at the going rate.

Give it a rest and try giving us your enlightened opinion on something of greater worth instead of abusing your paid position. Conflict of interest can have many faces.
