August 27 Letter to the Editor

To the Editor,

It’s concerning that anyone would see the renaming of Jeff Davis County after a murderer to be humorous. The same person criticized the victim of the murderer. Is that considered humor? They omitted the part of the previous letter where the Spanish ancestors of Presidio County were insulted. No humor there I suppose. Also, the name of the county, not the name of the town, as was mentioned, had been brought into question by a few petty souls. I did find  humor in that. The 8/20 letter does bring to mind a humorous quote from Barack Obama, “When ignorant folks want to advertise their ignorance, you don’t have to do anything, you just let them talk.”
