                        LETTERS TO THE EDITOR     

                    "Becky,
 
                           Since I have never met you or your family, I am not qualified
                   to pass judgement on your current family crisis.  But as a former
                   LIP staffer I do agree that you should not be using the LIP name
                   for a story that we did not cover in the past.  A great many decent
                   people put much effort into making LIP appear in print for 20+
                   years. I think LIP's memory deserves more than a one person
                   diatribe.  According to your mailing address you don't even
                   live in Lancaster.  We do.  You live in Philly.
                          By saying 'oops, the acronym stayed the same' was simply
                   catty and lets us know that you only want LIP for what little name
                   recognition it still has.  Why don't you call it 'Beckynews?'  That's
                   what it is.  A defunct alternative newspaper from another era is just
                   not the place for more stories.  LIP had an admirable run through
                   many less than certain times.  I think it is well past the time to let
                   it rest in peace.
                         Good luck in finding whatever help you truly need."
                       
                         
        My Response
 
                           Right now this website is the only thing keeping me going. 
                       I have good days and bad days.  The bad days are when I
                       think about everything too much.  I met a woman in similar
                       circumstances and she said for the first five years she thought
                       about it every five minutes.  For the second five years she has
                       thought about it every 10 minutes.   I am into my fourth year.
                       I sobbed when I posted the first incest story (To My Brothers
                       and Sisters). 
                            I continue to try and understand how this happened.  I
                       continue to try and understand how this was kept a secret. 
                       I continue to try and understand the parents who could
                       do such a thing.  I continue to try and understand their double
                       lives.  I continue to try and control my anger.  But then I think
                       of what they did to my brother and I get a surge of anger that
                       is hard to describe.  The incest story will never leave the front
                       page of this website.
                            And now I’m going to be brutally blunt.  I think a lot of the
                       former LIP staffers need to get their self-righteousness under
                       control.  Yes, a great many decent people put much effort into
                       LIP.  Yes, LIP had an admirable run.  Actually, an amazing run
                       for a non-profit, mostly volunteer paper with no money,
                       no resources, no equipment and the Lancaster Newspapers
                       constantly trying to put them out of business.  I was a part of
                       that for several years.  My brother and sister were part of it. 
                       My father, ironically, was one of the founders of the paper. 
                       I have only the fondest memories of working on LIP.
                              I happen to like the name and the acronym.  No one owns
                       the name “LIP.”  I wasn’t being catty.  It’s more like get over
                       yourselves already.   It’s been 10 years.  If you want the name
                       to rest in peace you don’t have to come to this website. 
                              That being said, former LIP staffers and anyone are welcome
                       to contribute to this website.  I would like to print what you have. 
                       You can contact me through email or my address is listed on the
                       Contact page (yes, I currently live in Philly and I have said that
                       from the very beginning.) 
                              I look forward to hearing from all of you.
