Don't Lose Sleep Over Him
Everyone is entitled to express opinion, but not every opinion deserves to be printed in The Glasgow Courier. Not Virgil Vaupel’s rant based on unsubstantiated information. Not as a paid columnist.
In Mr. Vaupel’s column, “Reverse Equal Opportunity” (Nov. 25, 2015), he said “American manufacturing … no longer hires on merit. They hire on skin color, sex and race.” Mr. Vaupel also believes that the decline of America began with the feminist movement.
These are big statements to make. Are these just his personal perceptions based on whatever information he fancies to pick up, or are these his conclusions after thoughtful studies of the labor industry and American history? Please tell the readers.
A Glasgow Courier paid columnist could do better than submitting personal tirade, because our readers deserve to read informed opinions. Maybe an occasional letter to the editor is a better venue for airing out his complaints. Or maybe Mr. Vaupel could cover the county commissioners meeting—I noticed that the Courier has not reported on county issues in a long time. Then he will actually get some news and facts to opine with.
