    Story was one-sided

    I was dismayed by your recent article on the firing of a facilities employee at Goddard College. Though you rightly did not print the anonymous letter you received, you went on to paraphrase it so thoroughly you might as well have put the actual letter on the front page. Though I have no formal ties to the college or its staff and had no prior knowledge of the incident, I thought your treatment was unfair to the administration, especially President Vacarr. The college of course could not comment on the situation and therefore the article came across as completely one-sided. The article could easily have been written without mention of what was actually in the letter.

    For goodness sake, if your policy is not to print anonymous letters, then don’t print them.
