Primate Obama: Dividing And Conquering Catholics
Oh, that Barack Obama, he’s a slick one, isn’t he? Slicker even than his immediate Democratic predecessor in the White House, whose first name was often coupled with that adjective[…]
r. cort kirkwood, managing editor:
is, at best, unbelievably dull.
he is, at worst, a bold racist who should be fired immediately for misconduct.
whatever your views, this type of ignorance or bigotry is inexcusable in our city paper.
the state urges you to take a stand. CANCEL your subscription.
231 South Liberty Street
P.O. Box 193
Harrisonburg, VA 22801
Tel. (540) 574-6200
tell them that you are canceling because of cort kirkwood’s most recent example of unprofessional conduct. tell them you don’t want any part in a newspaper with an editor so insulated from modern culture that he would dare think a monkey joke acceptable.
then, write to cort himself and help usher him into reality:
tell him that you hope that he has the decency to apologize and resign his post as managing editor. tell him that he does not deserve such an important position in your community.
our outrage is only tempered by our long held sense of indifference towards such a worthless rag.
harrisonburg needs a nonprofit newspaper.
more on that later.
we need to simmer down first.
