The Glasgow Courier - Serving Proudly As The Voice Of Valley County Since 1913

Letter to the Editor

Mary Honrud:


October 18, 2017

I’ve meant to send you a fan letter for quite some time, but your column “The Brouhaha” finally spurred me to write.

Thank you for such a well-researched and well-written piece on this issue. I’m a child of the 1960s when people burned the flag to protest the Vietnam war and it seems a fundamental right of free speech to me to sit for the anthem or not salute the flag.

I think your column deserves a much larger audience and I would encourage you to submit it to the larger Montana papers and to the national news outlets. I would love to see it in the Washington Post or The New York Times.

Thanks for this column and all of your columns, and for being a reasoned voice for people like me.

I’m a native of Northeastern Montana (Reserve and Glasgow) who now lives in Helena, and I keep up with my hometown by reading the Glasgow paper. Yours is about the only voice that expresses my thoughts and feelings, so please keep up the good work. I hope you have support among your friends and community. You certainly have my support and appreciation.

– Kay M. Johnson
