To the editor:
Well, once again I have had my morning coffee soured by another of Carl Burkhead’s all too frequent superstitious screeds. Once again, I have to wonder why this paper is so willing to provide him a soapbox.
I personally doubt the hypothesis advanced by Heliocentricity and I remain convinced that this whole “Round Earth Theory” is a fad that will soon pass from the popular conceptual vernacular. But I have refrained from any attempt to impose my crackpot beliefs on my fellow citizens. I would expect a newspaper, which exists, in theory, to provide its readership access to information that is reasonably and legitimately deemed to be factual, to deny a pulpit for such constant rants.
The Lawrence Journal-World’s continued and frequent publication Mr. Burkhead’s diatribes is a poor reflection on its character and an insult to its rational readership.
