Anniversary Issue

To the Editor:
Your interviews “What Makes a West Sider” (anniversary issue, July 30) just made us sick. We’re West Siders, too, but we were indignant with your special choice of participating West Siders. They didn’t say any really warm words about this beautiful area. But all of them are the kind of so-called progressive liberal Democrats. Actually, all of them are responsible for the current demolition of our country and its great values. It looks like they still don’t understand what they did when they elected Obama. Unbelievable and criminal ignorance! If all of our neighbors were like them, my family would leave this beautiful area. But there are the other kinds of people in this area. Why do you ignore them?

To the Editor:
Congratulations on “Westside Stories: 24th Anniversary.” While daily papers concentrate on international, national, statewide, business and sports news, weekly newspapers such as the West Side Spirit fill the void for coverage of local community news. All newspapers have to deal with increasing costs for newsprint, delivery and distribution, along with reduced advertising revenues and declining readership.
In the marketplace of ideas, let us hope there continues to be room for everyone still publishing today.
