Re: Ignore the hyperbole, letter to the editor, Sept. 15

In his latest letter (diatribe?) to the Editor, Mr. Rickett described the opponents of industrial wind turbines as people who “spread blatant lies, instead of using facts.”

Mr. Rickett also characterized and stereotyped opponents of industrial wind turbines as “the anti-wind lynch mob.”

Mr. Rickett’s description and characterization of opponents to industrial wind turbines is grossly unacceptable. Mr. Rickett’s comments could be construed by others as being inflammatory, slanderous, libellous and defamatory. Surely Mr. Rickett knows better on how to conduct himself in public.

Furthermore, I am mystified as to how a publication like the Stratford Gazette could permit themselves to publish such comments in their newspaper.

If it is truly Mr. Rickett’s desire is to rid himself of hyperbole, then it would be best for him to close off the spigot of his own hyperbole tap first; lest he sully himself further by his own thoughts, words and deeds.
