Brooks Judd: Days of mudslinging over?

Days of mudslinging over?

I doff my hat to Editor Joseph Kieta and The Bee’s decision to finally require people who anonymously post verbal poison, veiled threats and nastiness online to sign their names. Those of us who write letters to The Bee to share our views publicly are proud to sign our names. The days of posting venom while hiding safely behind the veil of secrecy are over.

Thank you for leveling the playing field. It will be interesting to see how many mudslingers will be willing to come from under their collective rocks and sign their real names. I’m thinking not too many.
