Letter to the Editor
Monday, January 20, 2020
Before 2020 gets too far along, I propose a resolution, and I hope the Spencer Daily Reporter does its part in making it happen. Thus I resolve to refer to the POTUS as President Trump, Donald J. Trump, president or our commander in chief. The same goes for calling all other presidential hopefuls by their given names. Hopefully other letter writers would also observe said protocol.
As far as your newspaper is concerned, it would serve as a positive example if you would refrain from the editorial cartoons that predictably defame, denigrate or otherwise demean our duly elected president. Elevating the level of civility is not all that difficult.
— Bill Kersting, Spencer
