I’m taking a break from Xpress

I read and reread Jeff Fobes’ response to Virginia Bower's Oct. 3 letter, “Et tu, Xpress?” about her disgust with the Xpress for running the full-page ad for the anti-Obama film Obama: 2016.

To be honest, she beat me to the punch. Yes, freedom of speech, blah blah blah. But to even slightly promote the vile, gross and, most importantly, blatant lies that are throughout the film is really a major disappointment to both my husband and myself, who wait with excitement every week for your paper.

Like it or not, Xpress is associated with a liberal viewpoint, and I am pretty sure that most if not all of your readers share a progressive view politically. I have heard enough grumbling on the downtown streets already that would concern me [if I were] a publisher.

So of course, do as you please. But I am taking a break from your paper, and I bet so are more than a few.
