Criticizes Lancaster Post for "Crossings" cartoon

Lancaster desperately needs other avenues to disseminate the alternative views in local affairs, but that avenue needs to develop a reputation as fair, professional, and neutral (my opinion)....

A case in point, the Crossing article while providing valid info, was seriously tainted by the editorial cartoon. Although such cartoons have their place, it is not attached to a specific article trying to give other points of view. (again, my opinion.) Additionally, in this case, it was not accurate and did a disservice to the two commissioners that voted to NOT move this project forward.

I personally hope the Post or other media outlets, such as your website, can be developed to compete with the “monopoly” newspaper.
