Butler County's great daily newspaper

Ad went too far

June 13, 2013 Letters to the Editor

Three cheers for Diane Bowser for her letter (“Ad incites violence”, June 7) regarding the inappropriate comment of Slippery Rock landlord Frank Monteleone, when he referenced a Florida school board shooting to enforce his message. Bowser echoed what many others felt upon reading his lengthy ad — many of us who are not involved in Slippery Rock issues and can be a little more objective.

I am certain Monteleone, who has been a vital part of his town’s growth, now has second thoughts about his inclusion of the shooting phrase in an otherwise well-intentioned article.
