I am sorry that Nelda Holder has been uninvited from Mountain Xpress [see http://avl.mx/u6 for the story].
She is an intelligent, intense, very fair-minded individual. She understands how democracy works, how functioning community works, and, whether as a writer, as a part of the League of Women Voters, or a community person, she puts energy out, as we all, in reality, need to do in a democracy. I admire her ethics and trust her.
As you may know, some words can have two subtle, important meanings. I miss Nelda Holder. I miss the Mountain Xpress.
