December 31, 2012 12:00 am

Your readers will miss Mark Kiesling. His searching out to publish the truth of corruption, his honesty and bravery in facing deceit and intrigue are media skills desperately needed.

Mark Kiesling's sense of humor could soften the horrors of the fun-and-games world without a conscience and where responsibility for grave mistakes is seldom taken.

Our world is tottering on the edge of more than a fiscal cliff. The daily doses of anger and hatred that flood our lives, the continued violence — both here and overseas — are forcing upon us the dubious ethics of  political expediency. These issues clearly are dangerous while they remain unresolved.

Journalism has lost another hero.
