Letter: New letter policy helps signal 'liberal drivel'

The self-described "lifelong liberal Democrat," John Lyons, takes issue with the Daily News about name placement on letters to the editor.

His facetious advocacy of keeping the name at the end of letters smacks of a desire to demonstrate his supposed superior intellect. Now that the name is at the beginning of the letter, he finds it easier to preselect letters not to read, whereby he may "unfortunately" miss an "occasional bit of wisdom" from writers like Tom Macchia and Barry Willoughby, with whom he disagrees.

I understand his tongue-in-cheek jab at these two conservative writers, but personally, I like the writer's name at the top of the letter so that I can see the name of him or others with his mind set and can anticipate their liberal drivel that never contains any wisdom.
