Vakay reaction was overkill

I must express my extreme disappointment with The Signal's overreaction to permanently dismiss conservative commentary writer Lynn Vakay from writing any future articles due to her failure to properly acknowledge the source of her most recent commentary.

In this age of the Internet, it becomes increasing more difficult to be original.

Though I certainly do not condone Lynn's admitted mistake, I question the motives of radicals like Nathan Imhoff in exposing this mistake as disingenuous.

The Signal's knee-jerk reaction is similarly suspect as I believe the paper continues to compromise the conservative viewpoint.

Perhaps The Signal should have been more clear in stating its column guidelines that borrowing source material without proper acknowledgment is professionally unacceptable.

Please remember, these local columnists we read daily in The Signal are unpaid and are not professional journalists.
Publisher Ian Lamont's reaction to Ms. Vakay's mistake is overkill.

I am hopeful Mr. Lamont would reconsider his decision to permanently suspend writer Vakay.

I read Ms. Vakay commentaries and find them to be grounded in appropriate moral and fiscal responsibility. Ms. Vakay made a mistake; she admitted it, plain and simple.

Signal, don't silence her voice.

On the eve of the passage of this disastrous health care bill, is no one alarmed that we have just added $1,200,000,000,000 (that's $1.2 trillion) worth of national debt?

This wild, out-of-control spending by our radical government is madness. That's the message we should all be contemplating.
