Open Forum: It’s all in the perspective


My pen hasn’t been silent but my letters have been silenced. Too much preaching? What? Me?

I discussed this with a co-worker who said it’s all in the perspective of informing or preaching.

Like a friend I had who would put ketchup on his hash browns. A friend of his told him he was ruining them and had no answer for him until he saw him putting soy sauce on his chow mein and told him the same thing but he answered, “No. I’m enhancing it.” Perspective!
