A spiteful column

Letters to the editor

Posted: Sunday, November 14, 2004

The column, "Here's some more truth about the election," (Fern Chandonnet, Nov. 11) was filled with many hateful comments, obscuring any hope of making a salient point. For instance, Karl Rove's intelligence was likened to that of a hungry rat. No reason given, so as far as we can tell it's just an emotional invective. Bush was likened to a rabid monkey. Again, no reason given for the demeaning comment.

Is this the best the Juneau Empire can do? What happened to thoughtful, meaningful dialogue? If the corporate goal of the Juneau Empire is to stir up the faithful of a particular party, bravo - well done. If, on the other hand, the Juneau Empire wants to be a tool to provide analysis, dialogue, and understanding in the community, please consider more thought and less spite in your future articles.
