I feel I must comment on the letter on the oped page. The writer felt "dirty laundry" should not be aired during Little League week. Suppressing the news is hardly the type of statement that one would expect in the USA. Of course, there are countries where that is not surprising.
How would we trust our local paper if we knew that to be the case here? Next would be protecting local "important" people by selectively covering local events. Hopefully we won't come to that.
