Thanks for taking a stand

Editor: 
I just read Dennis Evanosky’s story (“Newspaper 101,” Aug. 9). Thank you very much for standing up to people who submit opinion letters as “facts” or write “personal attack” letters, especially against people of color and the homeless. 

I also appreciate your specific support of Doug Biggs and Malia Vella who have been wrongly and often viciously maligned.

Thanks for all that you do for the Alameda community, too!
