The Sunday Chronicle-Telegram

As our reader see it
No more ‘Hairy’ stores, please
The Chronicle-Telegram:
I recently read a letter from one of your readers who claimed he was sick and tired of reading bad news and dared you to print one newspaper with only good news in it.
It is my opinion that not only would this be a difficult task, but also very boring to the average reader who has been conditioned through the years to reading stores of violence, bloodshed and tears.
Fortunately, there has been just enough good news printed with the bad news to keep our faith in mankind strong. I myself am not against bad news or good news, as facts are facts, and printing these stories not only educates the readers but also keep him informed as to what is going on in the world around him.
What I am against are stores put into print that do nothing but instill fear and apprehension in the minds of the young as well as the old. I am referring to two articles you wrote on a so-called “thing” or hairy “monster” supposedly seen in and around this section of Ohio.
It was bad enough that this story was printed at all, but to put it in bold print on the front page of the newspaper with a pencil sketch of what the “monster” looked like from eyewitness reports, to me, was outrageous.
I can understand how this type of story would sell newspapers, as it is, in its own way intriguing, thrilling and even thought-provoking. Our young adults up to our senior citizens can have fun talking and joking about “Hairy” the phantom of northwestern Ohio.
But what about the children whose young minds are so gullible and impressionable? They have not yet learned that monsters are found only in their local movie theaters or on their TV screen…. I speak for myself when I say that I have enough to handle trying to explain away the why and wherefore of drug abuse, the Vietnam situation, rioting, demonstrations and yes, even UFO reports.
But to have to reassure them each night that “Hairy” won’t enter their bedchamber to have to escort them to the bathroom in broad daylight for fear “Hairy” is upstairs is a bit much.
I realize this will pass, but what I ask is, was it really necessary in the first place? I have always been and always will be an avid reader of The Chronicle-Telegram, but please, please keep “Hairy” out of print.
