Letters from You

I'm writing to ask that you no longer send me Whitworth Today. The matter that has brought me to act is the Tea Party article in the Fall/Winter 2010 issue. It is shabby. Assistant Professor Andrew Hogue willfully misrepresents matters several times in his article. He does this most clearly when he describes television commentator Rick Santelli as having "...screamed and cursed his way through a rant..." and then goes on to describe the Tea Party as "guided by anger and given to absolutism." The tone throughout Hogue's article is disingenuous and condescending. I realize that my last statement is in part subjective, but there it is. Those I have observed in the media as well as those I know who are involved with the Tea Party are good people operating in a generous spirit.

Larry LaBeck, '90
