Re: Pam Brown Letter to the Editor, Oct. 30, 2013 I was surprised to find Dr. Pam Brown’s “Letter to the Editor” in the October
I am a student at Pierce College and I also work in the Office of Academic Affairs. I picked up the recent copy of The Roundup and was shocked to see the description used by your writers in a description of Republican Peter Hankwitz.
Although you reported that Peter Hankwitz included his personal opinions of gay issues, I wondered if it was really necessary to refer to him as a “gay Republican” in the heading above the column. I think the lead-in to the story would have been just as effective without the irrelevancy of the adjective appearing there.
