This was taken from my town's newspaper, the Daily Press. Actually, It's techinically the town next to mine and I'm pretty sure it's the only newspaper for the entire county. Here's the preface to an actual letter to the editor that ran Friday:
(Editor's Note: In the past there has been some confusion when publishing letters to the editor from Dan Young, because there is more than one person named Dan Young who lives in Delta County. Not only do two of them have the same name, but also live on the same street. For the sake of identification, the follow letter is from the Dan Young who lives on South 22nd Street but does not own and operate a downtown business.)
The letter goes on to bash republicans and so forth. I just love that intro to it. And I love living in a town small enough where they can put in this disclaimer before the letter and people then know which Dan Young wrote the letter. Ahh, da U.P., I miss you.
