Please explain why the commentary by Steve Bentley, “Maine Voices: Alcohol is clouding LePage’s view,” in the Sept. 4 Maine Sunday Telegram (Page D2) was followed by an online “note to our readers” saying the column “did not meet our standards” and “should not have been published.”

It was, by far, the most knowledgeable and insightful description of the erratic and harmful behavior of this governor.

What are your standards, if not to publish accurate, authoritative and perceptive information?
