Letter to the editor: ‘Was there no other news that day?’


To the editor:

How is it that more then one week after the Delaware Fourth of July parade you somehow decide that the leading headline in the July 13 edition would be “Confederate flag at parade stirs outrage”? Are we that pathetic and politically correct as a city that we have to make that our leading story more then a week after it occurred? Was there no other news on that day that was more important to the readers?

Was the flag at the parade improper? Probably. Is it that important that we have to make an issue of it more then a week later? I would certainly hope not.
