BY TONY CHEONG: I received three emails about my column last week (Huuge news: Trump sets up camp in Stanton).

One Trump supporter took issue with it.

One Hillary supporter took issue with it.

And one reader – Gene – made a general comment about the craziness of this year’s presidential campaign.

“Two out of three isn’t bad,” my editor told me. “Now, if everyone was made at you, I’d say you’re doing a heckuva job.”

Thanks. I think.

Anyway, on to the letters.

Dear Tony on the Town,

I think it was unnecessary the way you made fun of Mr. Trump. You didn’t say one word about what he’s going to do to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN. All you did was make fun of the way he speaks. Are you going to make fun of Hillary, too? There’s a lot of material there. She’s shrill, she’s gross, she BELONGS IN JAIL! Hillary for prison! I like some of your columns, but this one struck a nerve.

Bob, Stanton

Dear Tony,

Crooked Hillary? Why would you repeat a Trump insult? That’s all he does is insult people and you can do better than repeating his slogans. I shouldn’t be surprised, all of the media does it. I would really, really appreciate it if you would write a column on the ISSUES. REALLY outline where Hillary stands and where Trump stands. I think you’d be doing your readers a service. I think they’d learn that we know where Hillary stands, but we have no idea where Trump stands from one day to the next.

Rosa, Stanton

Hi Tony,

So Trump has a headquarters in Stanton? What next, Hillary setting up shop across the street so they can shout at each other? This campaign is a joke! Trump is an idiot and Hillary has no soul. They will say and do anything to get elected. I can sum up their platforms for you if you like. Trump: Vote for me because Hillary sucks. Hillary: Vote for me because Trump sucks.  Where have all the statesmen gone?

Gene

OK, then. Thank you for reading, Bob, Rosa and Gene. What say we all have lunch at, oh, Thai Nakorn or ParkAve. and hash this out?

Do Stanton proud, outdo our candidates and keep it civil, promise?
