Response to column

Politics distract from discussion

I have just studied the opinion piece under the title “Boys cannot just be boys” (published on Nov. 14). I found it very well written, and believe that it is part of a vital discussion that is truly needed at this point in time.

Samantha Pak had me in her court until she included the accusation against our newest Supreme Court Justice. It’s a shame that she revealed her political leanings in this way. This may or may not be slander, but for me, it casts a cloud over her objectivity on the subject.

P.S. I was a fairly well behaved boy about 70 years ago.
