Story was distasteful

GREENVILLE — To the editor:

I wanted to make a brief comment about the obvious concerns that have been expressed in letters about the article that was recently published about the very “sick” man and the horse.  I must agree with those who have labeled it as very distasteful and unnecessary.

Maybe this outcry will send a message that this community is starving for strong, positive reports on so many of the good things that are happening in Greenville and Hunt County. I only wish that national media could also get this message.   Sure, crime, murders, etc., are reality and may “sell”; but it is time these reports are minimized and stories of encouragement are maximized in all media.

Respectfully,

Jerry Speight
