On March 4, I e-mailed to Reader Opinion a comment about editor Hansen’s note regarding our nation’s debt published March 3 in Reader Opinion.
Two weeks have gone by and either Hansen has misplaced my e-mail or chooses not to publish it.
Hansen is in charge of Reader Opinion and if he chooses not to publish my opinion, it’s like “the fox looking over the chicken coop.”
By the way, I was just reading Hansen’s opinion March 17 praising Wisconsin’s economy and bashing Minnesota’s. You note Wisconsin’s unemployment rate at 6.2 percent, however you fail to note the Minnesota unemployment rate. The latest unemployment figure I could find (12/31/2012) showed Wisconsin unemployment at 6.7 percent and Minnesota at 5.4 percent. Wisconsin Rep. Eric Severson said the Badger state corporate taxes are beginning to recede from a high of 7.9 percent to 0.4 percent over five years. Is it reasonable or attainable to reduce Wisconsin corporate taxes by 95 percent? Is reducing corporate taxes by 95 percent going to be accomplished by reducing education or raising taxes on the working middle class?
As vice president of audience development and editor you are doing a good job alienating half of your readers. Maybe you can expand on this by inflecting opinions of radio talk show hosts Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck.
