Shame on you

Dear Editor:I have been reading quite a lively debate in your newspaper regarding the question of English only in the workplace. Obviously this is a question that arouses passionate feelings on both sides.Writing letters to the editor is a public forum, and it is the job of the newspaper to publish them out of a sense of public service. They should in no way be used politically, or to improve your circulation by spicing things up.I am referring to (the May 10) letter to the editor by Mike McGarry. In it, he clearly threatened physical harm to another writer who had answered his previous letter. Mr. McGarry’s threat may be prosecutable, but your publishing of the letter was certainly at least irresponsible and unethical, and possibly dangerous. Shame on you. Shame on you.Sue HefferCarbondale
