Letter to the editor: Dump Pitts

Pitts is a fine journalist, but he is too liberal to me. So I don't read it. I don't e-mail the LJW to dump him. Newspapers need different points of view, they do a better job of it them most TV and online news organizations.

23rd Street shopping center to downsize retail space; new report ranks Lawrence as one of the best cities for singles

That's a sign of giving up, going from retail to storage units. Personally, if you need a storage unit, you got to much junk, but that's my opinion.

Letter to the editor: A new election
