Since when does a newspaper, through the power of the pen by liberal and biased editorial writers, have the gall to chastise law abiding and productive citizens for expressing their freedom of speech? ("Discrimination in Ruxton," April 25.) To insult these homeowners, taxpayers and community participants displays the arrogance of this newspaper's own mentality. To promote the idea that 25 percent of families will suffer mental illness is propaganda of the most obvious and biased kind. The National Alliance on Mental Illness builds its own reputation and degree of importance by inflating numbers to gain attention. I know over 50 families and none has one example of mental illness. I suggest all Ruxtonites immediately cancel their subscription. Not because they disagree with your view but because of your insult to their character.
