Saving Ink

In these parlous economic times for Pensacola's version of a daily newspaper, not to mention newspapers generally, there should be some sort of cost controls on the use of ink. We suggest the PNJ begin by adopting this hard and fast rule:
No Viewpoint article will be published about any constitutional law issue when that Viewpoint consists of illogical gibberish written by a poorly educated high school graduate nearing his thirties who doesn't have a clue about the Bill of Rights ... or the American Civil Liberties Union ... or the sad history of the world when it comes to religious intolerance ... or the Federal court system.
Yes, everyone is entitled to his or her opinion, however idiotic and ill-informed it may be; but, no, a dying newspaper has no obligation to publish it.

Note to all Pace High School students:
The individual rights spelled out in the U.S. Constitution are not subject to the momentary whims of a majority vote, such as whether or not to "promote prayer and religious influence in Santa Rosa schools."
