The unsigned letter

Regarding the article on the front page of the April 20 Brainerd Dispatch, a letter was sent to Bob Olson stating concerns about airport safety at the Brainerd airport. If this is really such a concern, why was this letter sent to Mr. Olson instead of the city council or to the FAA? Since when do we put any credence in a letter that goes unsigned? For all we know this letter was from some air traffic controller looking for a place to sleep.
