The Farmville Herald Praised For Fairness

Editor, The Herald:

I want to thank Mr. Woodley and The Farmville Herald for printing my very passionate comments, prior to this election, about why Mr. Obama should not have been re-elected. That's what's so wonderful about living in the United States. We can express our opinions without retribution such as imprisonment or death like in other countries.

I hope this newspaper continues to publish both sides of an issue because I, for one, cannot keep quiet about something I feel in my heart needs to be expressed which may not fall in line with other readers.

I was, however, shocked to see in Mr. Woodley's pre-election editorial that he was voting for Mr. Obama. I thought surely he was in line with my thinking since he allowed my letters to be printed. What this tells me is that this newspaper is fair in printing both sides of an issue. Another great thing about living in this country is that Mr. Woodley can vote for whomever he wishes and still print the other side of the issue. Now we'll just have to wait and see who made the right decision for our country.
