In the last few weeks there have been some inane editorials in The Times Argus. One pointed out that it is summer; another one offered pedantic advice to graduates; another one regurgitated a New York Times article about cellphone use; and then there was a pointless, statistic-filled sermon about why fathers should have a day.
Steve Pappas is no editorial writer. He's a hack at best. As readers, we deserve critical thinking about things going on, not pithy sermons or left-wing propaganda. It's because of simpletons like him that our society is getting dumber and our local newspapers are dying on the vine. I read several newspapers to be informed — not to be bored to tears by filler copy disguised as something it isn't.
And while I'm at it: Tell the editor to bring back comics that readers want. If we can't have real news in our local newspaper we might as well have a laugh at his expense.
