I thank Ruth Schrauf

Some of you may have noticed my LTTE in last week's Herald... the one where the headline read something like "White pontificates on budget." Well, I hope you also read Ruth Schrauf's letter in this week's Herald.

I very much appreciate her support of my letter (though not necessarily my ideas)... but more important is the point that she made.

"Yes, I do know what the word (pontificate) means: to be pompous or dogmatic....

A statement of (the Herald's) opinion of (a writer's) words is hardly an appropriate thing to do and might certainly be a deterrent to many who might like to write about something to do with our town."

Thanks Ruth.
