To the Editor:

Congratulations on your reporting! It shows integrity! On Jan. 29, you reported that 3 black men terrorized and robbed a family in the northeast part of Mesquite. You quoted from the police report. On Jan. 30, the Desert Valley Times ran the same story, but omitted the word “black.” The next day, the St. George Spectrum (which owns the DVT) ran the same story and also omitted the word “black.” I think their omission was both significant and cowardly.
