15. Here's a thought:
It is possible that newspapers sometimes choose to print extreme viewpoints, just to get a reaction from their readers. I'm pretty sure that's what the local newspaper of my previous city was doing. And sure enough, it got responses. A few days after the ridiculous letter, they would print rebuttal LTTEs. The newspaper may be just pulling stunts to get a reaction.
