Well, it is in for a penny; in for a pound.
A recent series of posts and letters to the editor have sparked a very vigorous debate over at the Burd Report.
After my column inspired local businessman and political wannabe Manfred Schumann to write a letter to the editor, I responded. Then, my next column appeared and a second letter to the editor was sent from him, again.
Mr. Burd was kind enough to ask what was going on in a post today. This inspired a series of comments. Having already responded to his letter to the editor, I was not about to back down. So, I am waist deep in a good old-fashioned debate. It’s great.
It is so true. Journalism is a conversation. Even if voices get raised sometimes.
