RUDE: Watch your words

Print Article

I want to point out an unnecessarily rude and insensitive part of your article “Certainly different” by Jerry Hitchcock from July 29. Your writer complained about gluten-free options in the supermarket being “enough to drive you mad.” Expressing his personal, and extremely selfish, displeasure at having to shop at a supermarket which caters to people other than just himself is unacceptable. I myself do not need to feel guilty about having my two gluten-free brands on the shelf among the 15+ (much better tasting) brands that Hitchcock can indulge himself in.

Your writers should be respectful of others in your newspaper no matter what their immature feelings about the dietary needs of others may be.
