To the editor:
I think all this lamentation about free speech in reference to Tom McLaughlin is missing the point. Let McLaughlin write letters to the editor like any other moron (yes, I see the irony in that statement).
No one wants to keep him from his First Amendment right to complain about how hard it is to be white and male or to spread his homophobic ideology or his self-righteous racism; but why on earth should his poor writing and faulty logic be legitimized with a weekly column? That's the issue.
