Flatulence is Not Funny

To The Editor:

Something smells awful at the Signal.

What in the world is happening? There seems to be a rapid and noticeable decline in your standard of writing. Lately, we are being subjected to articles and headlines that are befitting tabloids and rag sheets but not for an award-winning newspaper of your caliber.

What was the purpose of printing the column on bodily functions by contributing freelance writer Diana Sevanian ('On Flatus...' March 1, 2008)? Have you taken leave of your senses, especially the sense of decency, or as in this case, the sense of smell?

If it was meant to be funny, it wasn't. It may be funny in bars or locker rooms, but please spare us those ugly bathroom stories disguised as entertainment or worthy information. What's next? Photos of public defecation?

We are confronted daily with enough doses of ugliness; we don't need Ms. Sevanian to get into our face with drivel like that. Enough is enough.
