To the Editor:
'Tis the season to be jolly and now the follies have come to that silly publication on Johnson Rd.
Instead of gathering news, they waste one third of a page to editorialize about your edition, which incidentally I find better written and far more interesting. I just realized that I buy The Messenger only because I am of an age where obits are important to me.
While they sit deskbound, asking us to send them news tips. Seems to me that I was once told that newspapers are gatherers of news, more accurate than neighbors. Guess I am old fashioned?
I had to notify them that they failed to cover an OU basketball game for two editions. Another time they gave two starting times for a coming game in the same article. Can anyone out there read or do they just "hunt & peck"?
Would you please relay to them that in their neighborhood (Plains area) there have been 29 break-ins and robberies in the month of November. Nary a word in the Mess.
I give up!
