Hey! No opinions/on Opinion page?


Dear Editor:

I appreciate reading Assemblywoman (Marie) Waldron’s weekly report on what she is doing for us in Sacramento. In fact, I would like to be reading what legisla­tion all our local, state and congressional elected officials are supporting or oppos­ing.

These types of articles are informative and helpful to the electorate and a better tool with which to judge performance than much of the nonsense that comes out during election time.

However, I’ve been puzzled why you are placing these self-promotions on your Opinion page and labeling them “Guest Opinion(s)”. In what sense are these col­umns “opinions”?

If I am to believe my dictionary, which I have come to trust, there is not a single sentence that includes an opinion by my count. As for actual opinions, I would welcome them, either the editor’s or those of your many readers.

But please, stop filling your Opinion page with non-opinions. They belong in another category.
