Letter to the editor: McGahey’s columns have a noticeable change in tone

Rick Hague


I feel that I should write a follow-up to a letter to the editor that I wrote roughly two weeks ago concerning Kim McGahey’s regular Tuesday columns. It would appear that the general tone and articulation of McGahey’s column has definitely taken a turn for the better.

In my previous letter, I criticized McGahey for the poisoned, negative, disrespectful and vicious tone that his first two columns in the Summit Daily had shown. His two most recent columns — Dec. 8 and 15 — have, I feel, taken on a far more decent and respectful tone with far less invective. I can’t really agree with almost anything that he expressed in either column, but, hey, that’s what democracy and free speech are all about, right? He’s just putting his thoughts out there for general consideration.

I hope that this positive change continues. I suspect that far more people will read his columns, consider the ideas that he has expressed and perhaps, as a result, reconsider their own ideas — once all of the invective and venom are out of the way.
