Changes in editing letters?
I would like to clear up a mistake that was made by the editor in a letter I wrote titled, “Through Rain Sleet or Snow,” and published in “Pulse of the Public” on Oct. 11, 2011.
The sentence, “And they would have to do it within a 10-year period” was changed to read, “And they would have to do it within a one-year period of time.”
It has been a week since Olga Cleary’s letter was mangled beyond recognition. Perhaps it’s time for changes in the way letters to the editor are edited before publication.
