Being Called a "Faggot" Is Worse Than a Death Threat [LINK]
My latest letter to the Boston Globe. Latimer's own letter was in response to a column by Jeff Jacoby.
While there was nothing at all funny about recent appalling attempts at humor by Ann Coulter and Bill Maher, at least I got a laugh out of Rich Latimer's letter defending the disproportionate attention given to Coulter's remarks. From his analysis I take it that prominent political figures are supposed to be far more alarmed at being crudely labeled as homosexual than at open talk of assassinating them, which is to be dismissed as a matter of political opinion. Thank you, Mr. Latimer, for clarifying the principled liberal response to this matter!
