Q&A wasn’t fair and balanced

Thank you for your editorial on the front page of the May 16 Enterprise. Next time you try to pass off an “article” like Q&A about Davis water rates, please label it accordingly or put it in the Forum section. Fox News could not have done a better job of only presenting one (biased) side […]
