Brian Cooney stated in a previous letter to the editor that The Advocate-Messenger "does not publish any columnists who disagree with its editorial views." He apparently doesn't read the editorial page very closely because differing views on a variety of subjects are published on a regular basis. He also is missing the point of an editorial page.
The editorial page is about opinion not truth. One would hope that opinions being offered on the editorial page are based in fact, but even that is not a requirement.
That is the beauty of free speech: You can voice your opinion even when you are wrong and truth or even "truth lite" is nowhere to be found.
