It’s really hard to retain respect for the journalistic integrity of the Explorer when the editor incessantly and obsessively publishes empty-headed hubris. For example, a “guest column” like the recent one authored by Richard Brinkley brings to mind the saying “it is better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and remove all doubt.” It’s an embarrassment to the community for a local paper to print such drivel. Thelma Grimes needs to revisit her editorial responsibility to the community. That includes finding something to editorialize about besides herself.

Dear Lois, There is a matter of the First Amendment, and of course, a right of the press to print even what you consider "hubris"
