It ain't a proper Monday unless there's a foolish letter to the editor in the local paper, and Barb Pullan of Marshfield does not disappoint:
Each February we pay honor, respect or simply acknowledge that two of our presidents were born and they had an affect on our country. Their pictures are everywhere.
We do the same for Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Christopher Columbus, among others. I don't understand why acknowledging the birth of Jesus is so controversial. No one will dispute that he was born and did affect our country and world as the other men have. Some of us will celebrate his birth more than others, but shouldn't he be allowed in the same buildings as the other people we honor?
