Letter to the Editor: Blogging with a broad brush challenges validity

Editor,

Please check the factual information of the blog you post as the Sandwich Watchdog.

Recently posted:

Unfortunately, 79% of SANDWICH residents disagree with the last three comments. Also, to suggest bullying at SHS is committed only by students who reside outside the community is just silly.

All we can say in response to the last few comments is: 76% of your neighbors disagree!

These statements imply that the survey included the entire town when the responses were around 80 hardly a statistical volume to make valid for such statements, especially when you need not be a Sandwich resident to take the survey. 

Love the Watchdog but loses validity when uses such broad brush painting.

Respectfully,

Name withheld by request
