The NTH dropped the ball

Your article about the god-fearing local smut peddling businessman besieged by government was — to say the least — misguided. To say the most, it was an assault on the intellect and moral fiber of the community.

Stating a 90 percent favorable support for a business dedicated to moral degeneracy is delusional. It appears the NTH isn’t as supportive of the community from whom it derives an income as they would have us believe.

What will be next? Advocacy for the misunderstood narcotics dealer who is just trying to earn a living while government thwarts his every move? A piece on prostitutes supporting themselves with incessant uterine proclivity for incubation of STDs, moral decadence, and offspring production?

And be sure to mention Obama’s “income disparity” rhetoric as justification for the burglar who feels cheated by society because he has “so little” while others prosper. (I suggest you omit the fact most of those “without” find themselves in dire straits because they failed to develop any skill society finds useful and willing to pay for, i.e., wages.)

Debauchery and turpitude sucks decency from society and provides an incubator for crime, and the NTH’s presentation of a smut business as just another successful enterprise is disturbing. Is it not enough to publish articles of entertainers’ bizarre “twerking,” heads of state cheating on spouses, and the people via taxes are being forced to provide sex change surgeries for the absurdity of gender identity crisis? Must you now portray a business dedicated to wantonness as just another prosperous enterprise?

The NTH should reflect the ideals of the community that it serves. While the smut peddler may have the temporary legal right to operate, providing free publicity to advance a business without redeeming social potential is impudent and disrespectful to your readers. Our community deserves better. Ken Schaefer Sharpsburg
