Takes offense

I am a 50-year subscriber of your paper.

In the reader opinion letter from Tom Lund of Longville Friday, Jan. 18, I was offended by what he wrote about our President Barack Obama.

You printed King Obama.

That letter served no purpose and was disrespectful of our president.

We should respect the office and our president.

There are a lot of senators and congressmen and women who are to blame for the things passed in Washington.

Bashing our president was hurtful to me and my family.

You can call this free speech. I call it trash.

Please don’t print any more racial letters about our president.

Also that big picture of the assault rifles was offensive and served no purpose. It wasn’t even local.

After all the deaths of children and adults that is poor journalism. Have respect for the deceased and families.

I’m sure many people agree with these two subjects.

Please keep things positive.

The world is full of non-positive things.

News should have some good in it.
