Re "We'll Miss the World According to Hoiles" (Dana Parsons, March 9):
The Orange County Register may be California's crazy aunt in the closet, but I certainly hope it will not be watered down by its new owner.
When I first arrived in Orange County several years ago, I took out a subscription to the "local paper."
After a few weeks, having noticed a certain, shall we say, "consistency," to it, I sent a letter to the editor, complaining that their opinion section represented just one side and made the same points over and over again.
Of course, they did not print the letter. But to my surprise I received a response back from a Dick Tracy, the letters editor. He wrote: "Welcome to the area. We represent a point of view, as libertarians, and we leave it to other publications to espouse the liberal position. There are plenty of them."
