So – I wrote a letter to the editor concerning the column about the woman and her house in disrepair. I wrote it at 10:00 at night so it is neither as eloquent nor as biting as I would have preferred. Heck – I am just not a writer.
Either way – I am pleased to say it was published. I hope one of those neighbors reads it and will feel even a little bit ashamed.
ADDING INSULT TO INJURY
Gazette should have passed
on reporting woman’s woes
I am appalled at the Sidestreets column in the Aug. 17 Gazette, “Years after neighbor’s death, good will sours as house falls into disrepair.” Since when is it considered newsworthy that someone has had trouble keeping up their house after a horrible family tragedy?
The tone of this article seems to indicate that Han Lee should be “over” this tragedy now that five years have passed. These neighbors should be thanking their lucky stars that they have not had such a tragedy occur in their lives and they should continue to offer their assistance if they are so disturbed by the disrepair. It disgusts me that these neighbors were willing to publicly air their petty grievances and I simply cannot believe The Gazette published this column.
