The Sun is a private business, not a military operation. That said, we have a chain of command.

From time to time, people who are not happy with stories that were published—or stories that were not published—try to contact me in an effort to get decisions changed or at least explained.

Ahem. I’m the assistant editor. The editor is my boss. Furthermore, he is my friend. We’ve been a working team since January 1986. I’m not going to double cross him and I will not allow myself to be used to manipulate or circumvent him. My editor is also my supervisor. I don’t have a veto over his decisions. You don’t enter or phone a business and ask an employee to undermine his boss. At least, I hope you don’t.

If you have questions, comments, complaints or suggestions about material published in the Sun or that you think should (or should not) be published in the Sun, contact Editor Dennis Kaiser at dennis@sunnews.org. We cover local news related to Seal Beach, Rossmoor, Sunset Beach, Los Alamitos, Huntington Harbour and Belmont Shore.

Clear?

Always a pleasure,
Charles
