Letter: Columnist's jibe lacked class


The Salem News

---- — To the editor:

I was distressed to read in the March 22 opinion pages of The Salem News a reference to my city councilor (Ward 2) as being “not-so-classy.”

I was certainly disappointed to read such a mean-spirited statement by Nelson Benton, one of my favorite journalists. Perhaps I do not understand “class,” but if Michael Sosnowski doesn’t have it, who does?
