Letter writers ought to lighten up

Reader reminds letter writers to be less sour in their letters

I used to look forward to reading the Peninsula News Review, especially the letters that the public submit. But now, not so much.

It seems to me that perhaps people have too much time on their hands, and they spend an awful lot of time complaining about something that happened or something someone had written in the paper.

If people want to have an eating contest at a local fair, what is wrong with that? If people don’t like it, then don’t go. It’s all in fun and they are not harming anyone.

Perhaps people should lighten up a bit and let others enjoy themselves – they, too, may find they enjoy themselves as well.

Life is too short for all this sourness. Remember what your mother said, “If you don’t have anything nice to say, then don’t say anything at all.”
