Will Rogers once stated that "I hope we never live to see the day when a thing is as bad as some of our newspapers make it." That quote came to mind when reading the "Shake up at Otsego" story in the Jan. 12 edition.
One tends to equate the location, headline size, and length of an article with the relative significance of the contained report. There appears to be no correlation here.
Besides the misleading headline (what "Shake up"?), is it really appropriate to transform the complaints of a handful of persons into a media event? I do not believe this reflects balanced journalism.
