from ADRIAN KUZMINSKI
To the Editor:
I am privileged to be a columnist for this newspaper. Readers ought to be aware, however, that editors, not authors, choose the titles for op-eds, letters, and columns.
My last column was misleadingly titled “Abolish Otsego Now.” That suggests shutting down
Otsego Now, and everything it does. I advocated instead that its functions be included in a much broader Economic Development Council.
The Editor also paired his title of my column with his own editorial calling to “abolish” Otsego
2000, suggesting some kind of equivalence which does not exist.
Material submitted to the paper ought to be allowed to speak for itself, and not be manipulated for sensational effect, especially in the very same issue in which it is published.
