In the Most recent edition of Estero Bay News (Vol. 4, Isuue 18), Mr. Hurtado of Cayucos takes umbrage to my brief letter I wrote several weeks ago published in the same paper suggesting what I wrote was opinion, not fact. I disagree but will concede that it has long been understood that all letters to the editor are opinion.

The 1st Amendment to the United States Constitution recognizes and validates a right to your believe, Mr. Hurtado, as it does my right to think.
