I have been subscribing to the County Line for quite a few years, since I have ties to the area with my great-great-grandfather, great-grandfather and grandfather farming and raising their families around Ontario and also still have family living there and in the surrounding area.
I usually check the back page of each issue to see if anything is worthwhile reading there, and on Good Friday, I received my issue in the mail.
Expecting maybe a nice positive article for Easter week, I was appalled to see the worst one yet. I tend to agree with the person who dared express their opinion to you. Do you really think people want to read your far left, hate-filled and bitter opinions?
Backtalk, as far as I can see, is just a page where you can vent every week, but I don’t want to pay to read it, so needless to say I am canceling my subscription that I just renewed in March. Please send reimbursement for remaining weeks.
Backtalk author Karen Parker’s note: On the same day we received the above letter, I also received a flattering note from a reader who included a $50 check for Burnell Colton, the New Orleans corner grocery-store owner struggling to continue to serve the residents in his still-ravaged by Hurricane Katrina neighborhood. Same column, two very different reactions. Every day in this job brings new insights into the human race.
