ec, Welcome to a small community, take advantage of what it has to offer and what it can teach you. I do find it interesting that your move to The Dalles has caused you distress because you do not like the 'religious' letters to the editor. Now, if I don't like what is printed, I just don't read it - or I may choose to comment on it. I don't particularly care for Mr. Fischer's comments myself, I believe he is wrong in many ways, but, he has the right to his opinion, no matter how absurd; I rarely read more than a line or two realize it is from him and stop. For some reason you chose to become part of the community, now you are complaining because another part of the community wishes to express their opinions, the paper allows it and you want the paper to stop printing them because YOU don't like it. Hhhhmmmm? ..... but that is your right to protest. What if the Chronicle chose NOT to allow your comments to be on this format, because some of us don't like them?
Can't have it both ways.
If you want to have other issues discussed in the letters to the editor site, then I would suggest you start commenting on what you believe is pertinent to The Dalles, not complain because the religious comments to not meet with your approval. Who knows, maybe that large city, back east newspaper mentality might improve the section.
