Writers need censorship, too

Re "Weasels infest city's arena deal" (Marcos Breton, Jan. 12): After The Bee instituted the most rigid rule I have ever seen for online comments, I find columnist Marcos Breton calling someone a "weasel." The Bee voucher code that must be secured before commenting online allows the newspaper to censor readers, but apparently the same rules do not apply to its own writers. Not only does Breton call people names, but he castigates an entire group of people when he calls us "just a bunch of old folks.”
