Chastising youth for writing letter

Published on January 11, 2017

I remember reading Souris High student Riley Flynn’s take on power outages, which must have been at least three weeks ago.

And I must say, many older folks probably agree with him, but another problem is that people are not prepared for long outages. That was the longest power outage I bet for the last 25 years.

What bothers me, and urged me to write personally, are comments published today in the usual pen name of Lloyd Kerry. I mean, come on Lloyd, you don't have anything better to do than publicly chastise a youth for a letter he writes.

Whether right or wrong, people, especially our young, should be encouraged to express their thoughts.

Maybe Lloyd should start a resolution for New Year’s, that being, let others have their say without finding fault in those views.

Lord knows, I get tired of reading your rants but I would guess you don’t tire of reading your own. We all know you write enough of them.
