East Lansing Info (ELi) prides itself on providing only factual, non-partisan content. As part of that, we prohibit editorializing in our articles. When we write and edit, we take special care to ask ourselves whether someone could reasonably see a word choice, a claim, or a presentation as opinion rather than fact.
Eighteen months into ELi’s life, we’ve decided to make one exception to this rule, and that is for pet obituaries.
