OK for letter to express writer's opinion

 


To the Editor:

A letter from Ken Bowman in Monday’s paper took issue with a previous writer to the Daily Globe expressing her opposition to same sex couples having access to the rite of marriage.

Bowman is a very talented writer who authored a recent series in the Daily Globe which I very much enjoyed, as I shared many of the same memories he did while growing up in this area.

I don’t take exception to Bowman’s right to an opinion. I do however take exception to his apparent disregard for the Daily Globe or anyone else expressing theirs. I do commend the Daily Globe for printing the many disparate opinions of their readers over the years.

Bowman recently retired from a teaching position at our local college where he taught our children. It is hoped he taught them the freedom of speech and expression as well as his area of expertise.
