Articles about explosive should not be printed

Editor, the Advocate:

Referring to the Dec. 9 Victoria Advocate: It is hard to believe that the front page was about a method to further show people how to cause violence. This has to be the worst article ever written in the Crossroads. That is what we do not need in this day and time. I think there should be an apology by this newspaper for reporting such news. This should not be fair game anywhere.

The article lends itself to those who will use it in the manner of violence as a scare tactic by going into such detail as the particulars of the method, etc. I feel there is more of an advantage to those who like to use it and get results. I can think of many front-page articles that would be of more interest than this, as it promotes those who will value it in the wrong manner. The younger generation, in some instances, just lives for something new and exciting, and you have provided it.

I do like your paper immensely but had to voice my thoughts on the front-page article. We do not need any more ideas posted concerning methods for violence.
