Thanks for reporting on antifa

RE: “Antifa in Brattleboro?” [News, Jan. 6]:

Congratulations on your reporting on antifa and white supremacy in southern Vermont. I appreciate the difficulty of reporting from sources that must remain anonymous. You courageously did not let that stop you, and you brought our community very important information. And you handled the delicate matter of the doxxed white supremacist well.

It would have been easier, I am sure, to just not deal with this, but you chose to inform us of all you knew and to tell us honestly what you do not know. I am very appreciative, and am sending in an additional contribution to keep The Commons strong.

Your accompanying article on domestic terror was prescient, appearing on the day the white supremacist mob stormed the Capitol!
