Letter - Dalman column disappointsI find it disappointing that the Echo Press continues to print columns by Dennis Dalman that consist of little meaningful content other than name calling toward the people he disagrees with.
To the editor:
I find it disappointing that the Echo Press continues to print columns by Dennis Dalman that consist of little meaningful content other than name calling toward the people he disagrees with. Consider the following excerpts from two columns October 16, 2009 and December 18, 2009:
“Especially Republicans and those stupid would-be Democrats, are dancing to the Devil’s tune.”
“poor money gluttons who have been ripping off hurting Americans”
“paranoid, reactionary screamers at the Town Hall meetings”
“mis-guided yellers (brain-washed bullies)”
“screaming foot-draggers buy so eagerly into fear-mongering lies”
“selfish, bucking behavior”
“should go jump off a bridge or just fade away”
“he would look best in a suit of tarred feathers”
“Acting like an arrogant jerk”
“Like a neighborhood bully”
“liar and hypocrite”
Mr. Dalman, your columns would be much better if you would first state the facts, followed by a conclusion, with which the reader could either agree or disagree. Your emotional rants indicate to me that you don’t have facts to supplement your position or is a lazy way of writing. Your analysis always seems to revert to name calling. Your writing style is sophomoric and sheds absolutely no light on the topic you write about. The readers of this paper deserve better.
Also, thumbs down to the Echo Press who continues to publish such one-sided columns that are detrimental to the intelligent understanding and discussion of the problems we face as a nation and society.
