COMMUNITY GOSSIP — Thank you for not indulging in community gossip about people's personal lives. If people want gossip, let them buy magazines at the supermarket check stand.
Even though our morals are in decline (as our ex-president demonstrated), we don't need more of it in our face. So much gossip is not true, but even if it were true, I would not want to read about it the I.V. Press. If people want garbage, let them watch Jerry Springer. — Steady Reader, El Centro
We don't agree "our morals are in decline." Morality is a lot more than sexual behavior. One can be as sexually celibate and still be a moral pig.
We thought the O.J. Simpson case was a major news story and the Clinton scandal was too important to ignore. So was the Gary Condit fling. The trouble was the cable news networks as well as the supermarket tabloids wallowed in all three.
