Stop printing Wilder’s rantings
Letters to the Editor
How much longer are you going to print the rantings and ravings of Greg Wilder? I have to tell you I got so fed up reading his drivel that when The Star arrives and I see a letter in “The Letters to the Editor” section, I just look at the name and if it’s Mr. Wilder’s, I completely skip reading his complaining. I would think other readers of The Star would feel the same.
It’s true Mr. Wilder is guaranteed the right of the First Amendment to expound on anything he so wishes but as owner and editor of The Star, you have the right to refuse to print his complaining or anything else for that matter. Unless of course, you are looking for filler for your paper. And if he is ashamed of his town, he could move over here and see how long he would last before wishing he were back in Coulee Country.
In talking with some editors here in Olympia regarding contributions to The Olympian’s “Letters to the Editor,” I have been told we have folks over here that constantly complain as Mr. Wilder does. Many of those letters never make it into print. As I say, you have the same right if you don’t care to publish them.
I realize you probably have readers that appreciate the so-called facts he seems to come up with and anxiously await to see what else he may have dug up for them, but as for me, when I see a letter from him, my reading of that issue of The Star is done.
