Napolitano column was concerning

I understand and support the need for newspapers to present different points of view, and I’m thankful that the T-R does so. However, I feel that the column “What if we ignore the government?” by Andrew Napolitano, which was published on Oct. 15, was alarmingly provocative. 

There are many people who feel put-upon by any kind of restriction recommended to help us stop the spread of COVID 19. Some are just grumpy, but others threaten and bully and react physically. Some go so far as to organize groups and plot insurrection, plan to kidnap a governor and who knows what else? As I read the column, I became more and more concerned about its message. If you read it before it went to print, I’d be interested in your decision-making process as to its inclusion in the T-R.

I’ve been a subscriber since moving to Marshalltown in 1979. Thank you and your staff for all you do to keep us informed — in print.  I love newspapers, and really mourn the loss of print media we’re experiencing all over the country.
