Letter: House Numbers

Why did the editor deem it necessary to have a large picture of my home with a headline caption underneath ‘my address is unlucky’? For the record I do not believe my address is unlucky. As the editor has stated “And, no, that was not a quote from you, just a headline”. 

I take offense with the headline of this article, as it is untrue and irresponsible. I have asked the editor for a retraction, but she has replied no, the explanation being it is a ‘semi-quote’. Was this a way to sell more newspapers, if so perhaps the readers should spend their money elsewhere if they want factual reporting. How about next time you want to report a story that may or may not impact the community, provide the facts to the readers.  The editor was wrong and should have known better.
