Sub-Editors' Point of View

As joint Sub-Editors, both Angela and I would like to thank Russen for the time and commitment that he has shown in doing the News.

Deciding to give up doing the News was not a decision that he came to lightly. Certain members of the community (albeit a minority) do not agree with freedom of speech -when last checked we still lived in a society that allowed this practice! As a publication for the community, the News allows the community to place articles for people to share in and to comment on. I fail to understand why certain quarters get 'up in arms' when members of our community makes their opinion known on an issue, they decide to write directly to the Editor to voice their displeasure. Any particular reason why they feel they cannot have their objections published? Do they feel threatened by what the Editor has written ?

All this conjecture is too little too late, however, but we feel that a great deal of thanks should go to Russen for the time and commitment that he has shown in the past 5 years in doing the News. Something, I feel that even though thanks have come from certain quarters, you would be amazed at how hollow those words can be.
