It does offer differing views

Responding to the Feb. 23 letter, “Wider range of opinions needed,” which includes the sentence: “You must start to print opinions supporting both sides of local issues and politics and stop stuffing Sid down all our throats.” The Opinion page seems fairly balanced to me. I relish Dr Schwab’s columns (which only roll around once or twice a month!) but wasn’t it just days ago The Herald printed the opinions of Dr. Krauthammer? I’d say that demonstrates an attempt at balance. Or is the writer saying that local (vs. syndicated) columnists should not hold left-of-center viewpoints? I say the more variety the better. (BTW, I have an acquaintance who’s of the opinion The Herald’s a right-wing rag!)

And, off-topic, great thanks to Catherine Paxton for defending the preservation of cursive writing — dead on!
