Keep diversity of opinions on Day's pages

Me thinks the snowflakes protest too much! The Day should keep Lee Elci and a wider variety of other voices to have a diversity of opinion in its newspaper. The Day's editorial board is so reliably against any common sense financial or social conservatism that some sort of counterweight is required. For example, April 16 Day featured an editorial, “Push past Republican opposition and adopt toll plan,” advising the governor and legislature to steamroll over those citizens who oppose tolls.

The Day's readership deserves better − so keep Elci.
