Column: Mr. Melton, who are you to decide sheriff’s candidate isn’t ‘respectable’?

This is a response to various recent articles about Billy McCoy, plagiarism, and Barry Faile.
Starting with the editor’s column, written by Brian Melton, excuse me if my punctuation in this column is “not” correct, or not up to your standards. I have not found any job descriptions for sheriff that list proper punctuation to be a job requirement.
Who are you to determine if Mr. McCoy is a “respectable candidate”? Have you interviewed him? That’s something for the voters to decide.

Yes, but they should only be allowed to talk to voters at the poll entrance after they vote.
