Writer takes offense to columnist?s past remarks regarding race

To the editor:

Curt, after seeing your story in the Mt. Pleasant News about filthy white homes, please don?t come to our house for a meeting as we had discussed; it would be very embarrassing to end up on your white trash list.

Your Empty Nest now has four spoiled eggs and a dead bird.

However, a job should be no problem, you can always get work at the slaughter house in the nice little town of Columbus Junction and undoubtedly make a successful run for the mayor position.

As for your sign-off line, there are words for you a lot more fitting.

?So long Empty Nest.?

?Good-bye, Curt.?
