Letter: In defense of Tom

You should be ashamed of yourselves for publishing such terrible yellow journalism Eric Naing’s piece was poorly argued, poorly organized and, worst of all, it was an insensitive attack on Tom Monaghan. All of the links he attempted to make between Mr. Monaghan and Osama bin Laden were baseless and infantile. This malicious straw man argument should not be tolerated. One of the first things one learns in rhetoric is to avoid such arguments because they are based on emotion and have no ground in the issues being addressed. There were too many logical errors in this piece to address them all, but if you had read it before publishing it, maybe you would have seen them.
