Woodstock Sentinel-Review | 03Mar2011 | Orest Slepokura


Dear Editor

The story of the newspaper carrier who clipped portions of the front page from the Woodstock Sentinel-Review to spare dozens of clients from seeing the presumably offensive word "hellish" in print recalls the playful lyrics from the signature song, A Wanderin' Star, in the musical Paint Your Wagon: "Do I know where Hell is? / Hell is in Hello."

Whoever the censorious soul is, he or she should also consider another mode of greeting other than "Hello!"
