Droning on a bit too much

January 19, 2014 

I thought your inclusion of Colonel Malec's letter, as the highlighted item on the Opinion page on Jan. 7 a bit bizarre. He was pointing out a mislabeled drone picture in a previous edition. He then went on to describe in detail the differences in drone wing span, manufacturers, and first dates of production. That would perhaps be of interest to readers of a technical aviation publication but I do not believe it is of interest to 99.44 percent of readers to a general interest news publication. I must conclude that letters of a general interest nature are a bit scarce.
