Letter: Don’t believe everything you read
September 06, 2013, 05:00 AM Letter

Editor,

My favorite part of the Daily Journal is the letters to the editor. But, during the last 11 months, I’ve also been reading the Other voices opinion pieces and have noticed a distinctive pattern. The conservative leaning newspapers like the Orange County Register in San Diego, the Augusta Georgia Chronicle, the Bluefield Daily Telegraph in West Virginia and The Oklahoman all have a pattern of not discussing the whole story, or providing both sides of the story, including all the facts and circumstances of an issue. To me, this is another method of lying. More importantly, I’ve learned valuable lessons reading the Other voices, that is, don’t believe everything you read. Also, always do your own research before you agree with someone else’s opinion. Otherwise, as the saying goes, “Never assume, it makes an ass out of you and me.”

What do you think of home solar panels?

I have them, they are great
I have them, not so great
Thinking about getting them
Too expensive for the benefit
Heard they have problems
Don't like them
