To the editor:

So many times these past few years I have wanted to respond to the opinions expressed in your newspaper by the person from Tennessee.

I have hesitated because I felt my words would not matter.

And then last week, Babette Wagner’s letter expressed my feelings exactly, and much more eloquently than any letter I could have written. Thank you, Ms. Wagner.

Were it not for the coverage of local news, I would have discontinued my subscription long ago.
