Matt Grocott has written several columns in the past that in my opinion were very good. But I think the Sept. 14, 2021, column was his best yet.

In your letters to the editor section, I see the same people write negative letters about Mr. Grocott — some very nasty.

I have sent a couple of positive letters about Matt Grocott — but they never seem to find space in that section.

I will try one more time. I enjoy reading columns by Matt Grocott and I think he does a nice job. But more than likely this will not ever be in the Daily Journal.

Congrats, Mr. Bacon. You’re letter has made it to the hallowed pages of the DJ. As we can see from negative letter and comment writers, even they don’t have the willpower to resist reading columns from Mr. Grocott. In this day and age of divisiveness, it’s nice to see Mr. Grocott unite us.


Mr. Bacon,

I also read Mr. Grocott's columns and enjoy some of them and shake my head at others. I like his general interest topics like his last column about his son, but I don't care for his political viewpoint columns, which are probably some of your favorites knowing your adoration of Donald Trump. I point out my disagreements with his flawed political columns and congratulate him on his other topics, if needed, as I did on his column about his son. I will agree with you that there is no need for comments to be nasty on either side of the opinion.
