Q: Monday morning, on KMOG, Dan Haapala read something called "A speech we need to hear ... and soon," the speech we wish President Bush would give. He said he'd pass that on to the newspaper. Are you going to print it?
A: The "speech" comes in at just under 1,400 words, and it's a third-party submission that is basically a work of fiction. Therefore, it doesn't meet the Roundup's criteria as a letter to the editor or guest commentary.
It is, however, an interesting "speech," so we've posted it on the payson.com bulletin board.
Thanks to KMOG's Dan Haapala for forwarding the speech to us.
Call 474-5251, ext. 147, to reach Roundup's What's Up? line. Leave your question on the answering machine and we'll try to find the answer.
