Here's a note from a reader whose e-mail address identifies him as Ken Otto...who knows if it's his name...complaining about how we didn't allow online comments on the story about racial profiling:
I found it amazing that this post did not allow comments. I have no idea why anyone would pay for your "news" paper.
Good luck on the unemployment line.
I think I may have heard from this guy before, with the "good wishes" for our fate.
Here's my response to him:
Your note is a good example of why we don't allow comments on some sensitive stories -- a few people abuse the privilege.
Was his disagreeable comment inappropriate for the online comment section? Nope. But I don't have to accept it in e-mail. I expect some civility from people in their e-mail, just as we do in the online comments.
