This is my first letter to the editor, unlike two of your most frequent letter writers. A few weeks ago we subscribers were treated to a "Daily Double" when both Larry Larsen of Mandan and Michael Quinn of Hazen each had a letter on the same day! Again today's edition contained yet another letter from Larsen.

I understand that it is the Tribune's policy of no more than two letters per month. Now that the Tribune has a new publisher I believe this policy should be revisited. I do read most letters to the Tribune, however I first look who wrote the letter and if it is written by either Larsen or Quinn I will not read them. Each of them apparently believes we readers are not capable of forming our own opinions regarding news of interest be it from television, radio or newspapers.

To preserve the integrity of the Tribune it would better serve the public by limiting letter writers to no more than two per year, rather than two per month. If the current policy continues, then perhaps the two frequent writers could have both of their letters included in your slimmed down Monday edition, where only the sports page has anything of interest. Your guest editorials are definitely worth reading and give a nice variety on different topics.
