Letter: Disappointing Choice of Stories
To the Editor:
I was very anxious to pick up last Monday’s Valley News from my delivery box. It was Veterans Day — a day to celebrate all of our past and present wonderful men and women who have served our country. My father, who is a World War II veteran, is one of those wonderful people.
We had expected to see some mention, story or even a photo of war veterans being thanked, commemorated or even mentioned on that edition’s front page. Instead, what did you publish? Yes, again, and in poor taste, almost a quarter of your front-page was devoted to a photo package about three generations of one family of hunters loading a dead dear into a vehicle! I do not mean to take away from this family’s accomplishment. However, for the general public, which I assume you publish for, it would have been wonderful if you could have had three generations of veterans on your front page instead.
