Letters

Why?

Dear Editor,

In these dangerous times, why did the Alibi stop publishing letters?
Demagoguery 101:
Make people believe the free press is the enemy
Accuse the opposition of weakness and disloyalty; threaten to lock them up
Rely on personal insults and ridicule
Evoke fear in your audience
Lie, lie lie; when one lie doesn't work, move on to more lies
Substitute emotions for evidence; oversimplify
Promise the impossible
Violate all standards of decorum
Trump in a nutshell. #MAGA2018

Editor’s Response

Brian,

Because we haven’t had room in the Alibi.
Also, because no one writes letters anymore.
Other than Brian.

Dear Brian,

See.

Letters should be sent with the writer’s name, address and daytime phone number via email to letters@alibi.com. They can also be faxed to (505) 256-9651. Letters may be edited for length and clarity, and may be published in any medium; we regret that owing to the volume of correspondence we cannot reply to every letter. Word count limit for letters is 300 words.
