Thank you Mr. Tarvin

I would like to take this one opportunity to thank a reader for his comments on the article tilted “Free Speech and Protesting”, but it was made clear in the first sentence that both free speech and the right to protest are cherished rights, but evidently it was not made clear that the right to protest ends for a person when it denies another person of their right, there is an expression that “one’s right to free expression ends when the other person’s fist is about to his another individual”, and the protestors crossed this line numerous times during their protests, this fact should have been made clearer in that article. The other thing that I learned from the review of the article is that my proofreading skills still need a lot of work.
This will be the last time that I will be responding to comments on my column, but don’t let that stop the reader from making comments --- positive or negative, I will continue to read them and use them, hopefully, to improve their quality. The Island Gazette has given me a forum to express my views for a number of years, and it would not be proper, in my opinion, to turn the paper into a blog sheet for the column. Again I’d like to thank Mr. Tarvin for his comments.
