A WORD ABOUT LETTERS

I receive many letters and I am glad to receive every one of them; even those that are critical, harsh, and condemning. 95% are encouraging and commending of THE EXAMINER, even though a few of these add some criticism and/or advice, which is fine. It takes both kinds to provide the necessary feedback to determine the effectiveness of the paper. Something vital would be missing if there was no opposition. Jesus said: "Woe unto you when all men speak well of you." Certainly all men, not even all women, "speak well" of THE EXAMINER or the editor. Definitely something would be wrong if there was no commendation and encouragement relative to this work.

Perhaps my greatest regret and feeling of guilt lies in the fact that I cannot possibly answer every piece of mail that I receive. There is just no way that I can do it. Over the years, hundreds of letters have gone unanswered. Not because I did not want to answer or didn't care, but simply because I did not have the time to do it. I apologize to everyone of you whose letter I have not answered. Please forgive me! I am sorry about it. However, you can be assured that I did read everyone of them; and I have almost everyone of them in my files. Your letters have been very, very encouraging through these years.

THANKS for writing. Please continue to do so. May God bless all of you who have written, cah
