Disagreement Is Not the Enemy (4/19/07)

I've been doing "Point of View" for almost five years now. In that time, I've shared over 500 of my own opinions, and many of you have also had your say on the subjects you think are important.

Judging from the feedback I get, most people tend to enjoy this feature. Many say they may not share my viewpoint all the time, but they appreciate my willingness to take a stand.

And that's the way it should be.

The primary purpose of "Point of View" has always been to start a conversation on the important issues facing us. Not to end all discussion with a "my way or the highway" attitude.

I know from hard experience that I'm not always right. And I'm willing to admit that.

If you do agree with one of my opinions and would like to adopt it as your own, be my guest. I'm honored.

But if you think I'm full of beans, and one of my editorials sparks a discussion that allows you to express and defend your own position, that's great too.

Opposing viewpoints shouldn't be anyone's enemy. But apathy is. So if you disagree with something I say, tell me. Tell everyone. And tell us why.

Fox 41 is always ready to give you equal time to present your side on the air. And even if you're not comfortable with that, you can always share your thoughts on our website.

But please - be a part of the discussion. That way, everyone wins.

I'm Bill Lamb, and that's my Point of View.
