Editor, the Gauntlet
[Re: "Poking a bear in the face with a stick," Editorial, Febuary 9, 2006.]
Thank you for the wise and balanced editorial "Poking a bear in the face with a stick" in the February 9 issue of the Gauntlet. Even more, thank you for the stand you take for journalistic responsibility, rather than the cheap and easy grab for "freedom of the press," to create a sensational reaction.
You show restraint, sensitivity, and leadership in not publishing the offensive cartoon(s) of the Prophet Muhammad. Just because something is legal does not always make it right.
