I'm embarrassed by The Gazette's coverage (and other papers, as well) of the president's comments at his immigration policy meeting. I am offended at his stating we should not want more people from poor black African countries or from Haiti. I'm even more offended at the coarse, uncouth language he used to make his point. I wouldn't use such language around my grandchildren or around my immediate family or my house or any of my polite friends.

Nor I would want any of them reading it or hearing it on radio, TV or any public media. In just today's paper (Saturday) it is spelled out eight times in the A section. At least the cartoonist (Page 4A) had the good taste to use "s***". A week ago, you would have had as much class as the cartoonist and nobody would have misunderstood what was said. As often as the media have complained about the deterioration of civil discourse, could you (and most of the current media) please try to give us some example?

Thanks to the cartoonist for showing some class!
