let Keep Guebert

Alan Guebert writes as an independent farmer making up his own mind, not as an apologist for grain traders, integrators, commodity groups who've lost touch with their roots:or as an apologist for President Bush.

No president should ever be held above criticism. I remember many Guebert columns skewering Clinton-era agricultural and other policies.

I would be greatly disappointed in the Agri Hews if it bowed to such obviously partisan pressure to remove his column. -- James Pladsen, Waukon, Iowa
