To the "editors" ("in-chief," "news," "editor," "associate," "deputy," "arts," "sports"),
You all have got to be kidding. "Latino Pageant" is the cover story for the week (weak) versus something as apparently insignificant as Veterans Day!?
What pandering. Something like this is expected from the East Hampton Star. Seriously folks, is a Latino pageant the key story of the week?
It's really nice that you found it important enough to put a picture of some of our veterans on page 15, great recognition for those who fought and risked their lives for our country.
But hey, let's salute and pay homage to the Latino pageant; God knows that is what's important in today's world.
Editor's Note: The Independent's November 8 issue featured five pages of Veterans Day coverage, including a calendar of events and interviews with two veterans. It's curious you consider the article an example of "pandering." Who were we pandering to, and why? When more than 300 people attend an event in November that is news out in these parts. Yes, we felt it was the top story of the week. It was either that or "Ro Ferrari Has A Bad Hair Day."
