Letter: Does The Forum try to be this tone deaf?

In response to " Fargo girl bags 600-pound wildebeest during her first hunt ever " published Nov. 29:

Boy, you guys at The Forum have really got a knack for being tone deaf about killing animals. It's called the anthropomorphic point of view, meaning to me taking, for no reason, gratuitously and pointlessly, anything and everything to feed the almighty me, me, me!

In this case, gratuitously killing a wildebeest and other animals by, yes, a young girl. It obviously presents The Forum point of view that it's OK and really a great thing. It says, "Yes, this is OK," and it's got your imprimatur all over it. Shame on you. Couldn't be more tone deaf if you tried. You aren't actually trying to be tone deaf, are you?

Olson writes, "I understand that the police department is short staffed, but I thought when a resident requests police assistance, then an officer is dispatched as quickly as possible. I guess damage to property is no longer a priority for the police department."
Odegaard writes, "Every pro-life and anti-abortion activist should be fully financially responsible for the fetuses they are so concerned about after birth for it to have a quality of life. After all, you are the ones who wanted the baby."
