I was glad that my Oct. 10 letter drew such a passionate response and I welcome more. I am curious as to what in my letter possessed the respondent to imply that I was in favor of teen-age drinking. Nothing could be further from the truth. Neither did I say that the schools don’t have the right to make such rules, which was also implied in his response.
The fact that the respondent chose to use faulty analogies, ignore certain statements, mischaracterize and spin other statements and belittle student athletes and their accomplishments is unfortunate.
