Letter: Dick Yarbrough’s column shows strong journalistic ethics

Dick Yarbrough's column in Saturday's paper is an example of old-school journalism.

Even though his topic is tragic, I “enjoyed” reading what he had to say, because he backed up his assertions with facts, not hyperbole or heated emotion.

It was actually a relief to read his well-documented piece because I did not have my defense mechanisms up, trying to determine what was the product of an over-blown opinion of his own position and what actually conveyed a factual situation.

In terms of journalistic ethics, would that everything old could become new again.
