I got a little...uh pissed the other day. So I wrote a couple of emails to both the writer and the publisher of the State paper. While the douche of a writer is yet to respond or even open his email, the publisher wrote back immediately. Here is his response.
Thanks for your note. I indeed was the publisher in State College. I
also grew up in PA, earned a graduate degree at PSU and am still a Penn
State fan. I've been a fan of Paterno's too, but that doesn't mean I
think he has perfect judgment. I think you'd agree that no one that
walks our earth does.
When Ron Morris is writing as a sports columnist he does so with his own
opinion. As you'd likely suspect there are those who agree completely
and those who disagree completely. But, it's his perspective. I invite
you to write a letter to the editor and we'll consider it for
publication if you have the interest. That would provide an outlet for
your thoughts to a wider audience.
I appreciate your note and enthusiasm, and Paterno has surely done some
great things. I'm passing this along to our top editor so he can read
your comments as well.
Kudos to the man on writing back so quickly. I am going to take him up on his offer to write a letter to the editor.
