Letters to the Editor

Poor judgement

Editor, The News:

Re: Ad seriously crossed the line of decency (Letters, May 23).

I have to agree with Leah Pillet. The ad for the Caddy Shack was totally inappropriate for promotion in a community paper.

When viewing the ad, the question here is – what is the business promoting?

As the saying goes, a picture is worth  a thousand words.

In this case, The News – a community paper – is the representative and reflects its endorsement for the content of the newspaper.

In my opinion, the paper did not use the best judgement in previewing the Caddy Shack ad before publishing it.
