Rehire Cecil!

I am writing to express my outrage and sadness at learning that Cecil Bothwell—many times winner of the Xpress’ “best journalist” award—[has been fired] for being too outspoken. I have always enjoyed and learned a great deal from reading Cecil’s insightful, thoroughly researched and beautifully written stories, and I believe many other readers feel the same way.

Does this mean that your newspaper is going to print only bland, mainstream stories from now on? I will be mighty distressed if that is the case.

Please reconsider and rehire Cecil!
