((The special report by Joe Dashiell and Keith Humphry on Roanoke's late mayor, Noel Taylor, brought a couple of notes, including this one from a Roanoke viewer: [Edith Greer]
"Your tribute to the memory of Noel Taylor was excellent! My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Although we never had the pleasure of meeting him, we were always impressed by his ability to get things done quickly, quietly and effectively. Roanoke was truly blessed by God in the person of Noel Taylor."
Our coverage of the meetings a couple of weeks ago between Lynchburg evangelist Jerry Falwell and gay rights activist Mel White brought these comments from a viewer in Christiansburg: [James H. Dorsett]
"While your reporting of the meetings...was generally objective and well balanced, one phrase...did fall short of the clarity that you normally maintain. You referred to these meetings as taking place between 'Christians and gays.' In so stating, you tended to dichotomize, implying that Mel White and his followers are not Christians...I believe that your reporting would have been more accurately descriptive had you spoken of 'fundamentalist, evangelical Christians and gays.'"

Governor Gilmore's election night allusion to the famous speech by Martin Luther King, Jr. irritated some people and brought complaints to the state chapter of the NAACP.
A Martinsville viewer wrote: [W. Stout]
"I think it is ridiculous that the NAACP is upset with the Governor. The NAACP should focus on real injustices in the world, not who uses words from a hymn in exercising their Freedom of Speech."
And Bryant Gumbel's debut on the new CBS morning program, the Early Show, upset a viewer from Bedford County. [Melvin Brafford].
"Mr. Gumbel is a self-confessed racist, and holds very left wing anti-American views. I can't imagine the execs of the CBS network putting him on a national television show. It's almost as bad as putting David Duke on Black Entertainment Television...I will really miss seeing your excellent local news, but one has to draw the line somewhere."
