From Ralph Hashoian, West Bloomfield Township:
My correspondence with the media in the last (few) years has seemed always to be in the form of a negative response to various news articles. But I must say I was very impressed with your (editorial) on Nov. 9-15, “Bullying is bullying. Period.” What refreshing insight, guts and honesty.
It is rare today to see the press do its job — call it as it is. In this case (its job is) taking a stand on something that is obviously wrong. I would like think the GOP, (state) Sen. (Mike) Kowall (R-Commerce, Highland, Milford, Walled Lake, Wixom, Wolverine Lake, White Lake, Orchard Lake, West Bloomfield) and (state) Sen. (David) Robertson (R-Waterford) know this fact, (but) they are just playing to the choir.
Their reluctance to answer the pointed question just adds to the direction they wish to go, and I cannot, as benevolent as your editorial was, (give) them a pass.
They should come right out and admit the error and set the story straight.
But your paper gives me hope that maybe the press at times can still have the courage to enlighten the people and not just mouth the messages of the GOP Senate.
