I am writing to express my disappointment that John Keisling has now been appearing only once every couple of weeks rather than in the weekly manner of before.

While it is a fact I am slightly to the right of "liberal," and Keisling is just barely to the left of Atilla the Hun, this lad makes me think about what I am reading rather than just scan to the next piece. Perhaps it's just that I prefer being provoked than bored, but I think it's more than that. Keisling has a genuine craftsmanship with words and ideas, and I really hope you folks will get him back to once a week. A university newspaper, it seems to me, should always put effectiveness in communication and stimulation significantly above position in the political spectrum.
