Questions Op-Ed

Dear Editor:

What exactly was that “Op-Ed” last week doing in the editor’s column, where we’ve long been accustomed to the excellent editorials of The Morgan Messenger’s former and current prize-winning editors? Were all those Eastern Panhandle Republican delegates a group of guest editors? Was it a free advertisement for the TransCanada and Mountaineer Gas pipeline (wonder what kind of donations those corporations are making to their campaigns?)

How come those people don’t have to follow the rules we all have to follow when we contribute our opinions to the paper? Why didn’t their opinion appear as a letter or paid advertisement? Was The Morgan Messenger officially endorsing their very partisan view? We are concerned as to exactly how we should take this “Op-Ed.”
