I sent the following letter today to Time magazine:
It shows extremely poor editorial judgment to feature Ann Coulter on the cover of Time on the tenth anniversary of the Oklahoma City terrorist attack that killed 168 people, including 19 children.
Recall that Ms. Coulter once said (as quoted in the New York Observer, Aug. 20, 2002), “My only regret with Timothy McVeigh is he did not go to the New York Times Building.” She later “amended” her statement (in an interview on rightwingnews.com): “Of course I regret it. I should have added, ‘after everyone had left the building except the editors and reporters.'”
I consider myself a great advocate of free speech, and Ms. Coulter is entitled to her own opinions; but is this really “just having fun”?
