RE: Road trip

What I found so interesting in all this was the lack of any sort of relative editorial in the Sheboygan Press on this matter today.

Instead, all you have is a rather thought-out letter from of all places Concord, Nebraska, which highlights how nationally this story's gone.

The only thing close to anything regarding the event is an editorial asking for civility on the paper's online comment boards. That's fine and all, but it dismisses the reason as to why the sudden lack of civility's going on.

I don't know what's going on. Either the paper wrote all of its editorials ahead of time (something they have done in the past) and hasn't gotten around it. That however, doesn't explain today's editorial about online civility. Or, they haven't the stones to say anything at all about the decision; or they haven't the nerve to attack a Van Akkeren of Sheboygan.

Take your pick.
