Why I’m no subscriber

I picked up my latest “Inlander” today, and one of the pages I turn to is the letters columns. And here was a James Pappas of Coeur d’Alene, Idaho waxing utterly vicious that “The Inlander” could task his favorite Coeur d’Alene Press for printing conspiracy articles (letters) about the “health risks” of jet contrails. Now, I don’t believe that I had read “The Inlander’s” reporting on what the Press would put into its thrice weekly “Readers Write” columns, but I am well aware of the ignorant panic and hysteria over jet contrails, black helicopters, and of course; how “dangerous” that “commie” Obama is to this nation. What I do know, is that the more vicious, hate-filled, utterly stupid the letter (or letter writer) is, the more likely The Press will publish it. It really doesn’t matter if Mr. Pappas wants to pride himself in thinking that The Press will publish his opinions even if the editor(s) don’t agree with him. The Press publishes attack letters, even those that border on or even cross the line of libel. And then, refuses the recipient an opportunity to respond and even correct the matter. Hardly “fair” under the circumstances. So, here is Mr. Pappas’ letter at its most offensive…

“Incorrect on Contrails”

Just what in God’s name is wrong with you people? I read the article “Flights of Conspiracy” (5/17/12) admonishing the Coeur d’Alene Press for allowing contrail “conspiracy theory” articles to be advanced. First and foremost, I would like to state that I highly doubt that the CDA Press has to take pointers on how to run their newspaper. I know, because they have printed plenty of my opinions that they may not agree with. That is authentic, fair and professional journalism practiced right in front of your very eyes.

The Air Force, NASA and the EPA seem to be your Holy Tribunal for what is true or false. To my knowledge, the Air Force has denied the existence of UFOs while NASA’s primary mission is to visit other planets as UFOs.

Any concern as it relates to public health should be respected. If we are going to be in error, let it be on the side of safety. For The Inlander to imply that all of the scientists, biologists, state representatives and concerned citizens in many nations around the Earth are all involved in a deliberate scam is not only absurd, but is the best evidence as to the character of these naysayers.

I would like to give you some good advice: Mind your own business and count how many idiotic words your newspaper printed instead of how many the CDA Press printed trying to water the dead plants that some people call heads.

Coeur d’Alene, Idaho

Outside of it sounds like Mr. Pappas doesn’t like someone challenging his favorite fantasies, he doesn’t really seem to be saying very much of anything. Under the circumstances, since “The Inlander” published this fellow’s letter, then the weekly can add his “idiotic words” among those to be counted.
