An interesting dilemma!
I have a postcard back that I would like to put on this blog. To be perfectly, honest, the vast majority of the message is pretty bog-standard. It’s just a fairly typical report on a fairly typical holiday in the United States. The problem is that while the message was written in all innocence in 1949, today, part of the content would be regarded today as offensive. My dilemma is:
Should I publish the mesage as is (and probably be damned)?
Should censor the offensive part of the message and leave the reader to work out what may have been written?
Should I just forget this postcard and not publish it at all?
Answers (polite) on a postcard, please……
