Does freedom of speech only apply to (Maureen) Dowd? I don't always agree with (Ann) Coulter in her views. I do find her recent statements far less objectionable than Dowd's repeated degrading and blasting of our country's president. It is my opinion these editorials are harmful to the patriotism of this country. If Dowd's columns are accepted and Coulter's are rejected, it simply illustrates the leanings of our media and the new residents of our valley. If Coulter goes, who is going to be next in your publication's choices?
