Keep the astrologer

Dear Editor:I think The Aspen Times should continue to print Tomas Gregory’s column until charges have been proven to be true.Anyone can make accusations against another person without merit or truth. Then the process of fact-finding begins. Meanwhile, press coverage and gossip foul the accused person’s reputation and life conditions, regardless of guilt or innocence. Humans have become so ready to condemn a person on a suggestion of poor behavior without knowing anything really. I do not know this man or if he is innocent of these charges, but I’m certainly not ready to tar and feather the guy before he has his day in court. Remember Salem?As far as Paul Voakes’ suggestion to “dis” Gregory by pulling his column and then apologizing when and if he is proven innocent … I would tell him where to put his apology, in some corporate dark place, because it would be too little, too late. That kind of behavior is just lame and fear-based, which is a very weak and unproductive base to operate from.I say leave him alone professionally as a newspaper astrologer. When the truth is revealed, take the appropriate action. Until then, how about a little professional integrity instead of alarmism?Karon LundyAspen
