Paper should be named, 'Republican Standard-Examiner'

Editor,

There should be a new name for our local newspaper. After the Sunday, Apr. 21 full page elaboration of the Republican convention and the pitiful reference to the democratic convention the following Monday, the newspaper should be renamed the "Republican Standard Examiner." It's not too long of a name for a newspaper that also publishes a long line of right-wing columnists and "Our View" editorials that reflect mostly Republican agendas. The name is long overdue. The Democratic convention was one of the largest ever, but to the writers of the Standard thought it was apparently not worthy enough to appear in the Sunday edition. Only a Republican event warrants that one.
