Letter: Rather than berate newspaper staff, why not educate others?

Editor,

In reply to Captn Blynd: I was never even aware of retinitis pigmentosa until my sister was diagnosed with macular degeneration and declared legally blind seven years ago. She has chosen not to play the “victim card” and she certainly isn’t sensitive and easily offended by her condition, or as you would say, “life challenges.”

This was a perfect opportunity for you to educate those who are not aware of the disease, which probably includes most of The Record’s subscribers and perhaps all of the staff. Instead you chose to berate the staff with a cheap shot for a perfectly appropriate title to a well written article.

Lynn Flaaten,

Greenbank
