Please pass on my deepest sympathy both to The Queens Courier family and his own family on the passing of former editor Lou Parajos.  Lou never censored my letters to the editor during his time as editor-in-chief.

Prior to the launching of your digital edition in December 2007, it was Lou who suggested the names of several regular letter writers including myself as potential bloggers to co-publisher Joshua Schneps.  To this day, I continue to have many of my letters to the editor published.  I also have the honor of “Penners Pen” being the longest running continuous blog for over five years.

Not only The Queens Courier staff, but many of your regular letter writers, bloggers and thousands of regular readers will also miss Lou.
