Woke up this morning, got a cuppa java, and sat down to read the Union. Checking the "lost" column I reeled. Here is the ad "Lost dog, black pitbull terrier on Greenhorn Rd, answers to the name of "dirtyni**er" call 530-270-1050. missing since 8/2". Now folks, I have put the ** where there were two g's. Got it?
Question: what sort of animal names their animal that?
Question: who is asleep at the wheel at the Union that allowed that to be published?
Question: how many people are now looking for the owner and dog to give them a piece of their mind?
Question: is this a "prank" from the mind of someone with a really bad sense of humor?
Question: does the Union have editors and proofreaders?
I called Publisher Jeff Ackerman for an explanation (at 11:30 am). He had no knowledge of the ad and has to "research" how this happened. I asked if the Union would apologize. He said "I don't think there is a need for that." My opinion is that no responsible paper would print this ad. At the very least he owes subscribers an apology. Way to make Nevada County look like rampant rednecks Jeff.
How do you feel about this? Call Jeff at the Union, 273-9561.
