We’ve received replies to several recent KSL editorials we’d like to share with you.
Our editorial reaffirming KSL’s support for the Legacy Parkway brought agreement from Will McGregor of Bountiful. However, he took us to task for saying, "now is not the time for the blame game."
"Such an outrageous waste of taxpayer money requires that someone bear some blame. This is more than a small mistake . . . You need to have the courage and integrity to say that the Governor bears responsibility."
In another editorial, KSL said a burgeoning public school population "means taking a serious look at the State’s budget priorities." From John E. Barnhill of Salt Lake City came this response:
"Unfortunately, your editorial ignores the problem . . .
Why doesn’t KSL advocate a responsible approach towards helping people determine family sizes that are appropriate for their economic situation and for our educational system? It’s called family planning."
In yet another editorial, KSL called on the Republican Party in Utah to "abandon the incongruity of a closed primary" election. From Lynn Price, a former Salt Lake County Party Chair, came this response:
"I, too, am concerned about more and more people being shut out of the political process. However, without a closed primary, even more are going to be shut out of the political process."
You can read Price’s argument for a closed primary, along with a more complete text of the other editorials here.
