Sadie was absent from the Reporter this month...

Yes, Sadie was very absent from the UCO Reporter this month, with reason.
As long as they carry my name on their staff, (and I have asked it to be removed) I can not submit letters to the editor, I can only write "an opinion piece".
As much as I would like to write an piece stating my opinions on some of the ridiculous crapola that has been going on, I really can not. It would then be subject to editing, or being told it would not run because of fear of offending one or more people, no matter how truthful the article is.
I can not in good conscience write a piece that will not reflect my true opinion.
The same goes for Sadie's World. There have been times when my cartoon was a bit controversial even for The Reporter and it was redone.  Only once has it been pulled without my prior knowledge because of fear that someone may be offended. and Frankly, it was probably one of the best.
I will continue to support The Reporter and it's editors Joy Vestal and Myron Silverman, even when we don't always see eye to eye.
It is with that in mind that I take particular offense that someone with absolutely no prior experience in any media other than YouTube will criticize people with 40 or 50 something years of REAL EXPERIENCE in the real world of newspapers and printing.
When he can prove he has half as much experience, then his opinion might mean something other than a bitter renter that is mad at Ed Black for curbing his use of UCO property for his own profit.


  1. Who is this renter? Expose the cretin!

    While the use of the word "cretin" is a bit much, I believe the person is one Neil Moore.
    I'm sure I will be corrected if I am in error.

  3. Yes, he's the one with lots of opinions (always wrong) about everything around here--signs, lakes and canals, etc., etc.
