Pleasantly surprised

I was pleasantly surprised on Election Day when I turned to the opinion page of The Union and found two Other Voices submissions that were well-reasoned (“In an economic war zone,” by Phil Turner) and well-written (“Introduction to politics” by Lucille Lovestedt).

They were a refreshing change from the dreck you’ve been shoveling at us recently, apparently intended to show that not everybody in this county is fully evolved, or that some of our neighbors live in a parallel universe detached from reality.

I knew you could do better. Keep it up.
