I read the editorial by Joe Southern (“Getting to know the new guy about town”) with interest in the February 10 paper. Welcome, Joe!
Southern made a point of mentioning that he is “very conservative” and this has a pleasant sound to me as one of the predominately conservative residents of Fredericksburg. However, I’d like to state my view concerning what is important for a journalist regardless of where he/she may fall on the left-right continuum; to report the relevant news with objectivity and fairness.
Again, welcome! Here’s hoping for the best!
