Letters to the Editor

LETTER TO THE EDITOR | Copy editing needs improvement


I’m basing this letter on an assumption. That assumption is that reporter Jessie Stensland and Judge Alan Hancock both know the difference between partial and impartial jurors.

That being the case the following quote is obviously an editing oversight: “He said any impartial jurors will be weeded out during the jury selection process.”

It appears to me that you really need to edit your paper’s content rather than depend on the writers to edit their own.

Just my 2 cents, our mileage may vary.
