  • LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Free-speech rights for all, not just select few

    As the tolerance for more liberal ideals has increased among the American public, conservative ideals have been suppressed.

  • LETTER TO THE EDITOR: A&E decision reversal a good start

    It's encouraging that A&E executives seem to have been converted from bigotry to tolerance after public objections to their suspension of "Duck Dynasty" patriarch Phil Robertson ("A&E chooses profits over gays, Duck Dynasty over GLAAD," Web, Dec. 29). Now that the network has reversed course, it is readying a charm offensive "promoting unity, tolerance and acceptance among all people." The planned message "supports our core values" along with those "found in 'Duck Dynasty.'"

  • LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Jackson's ironic Robertson critique

    A few years ago, the story broke that Jesse Jackson Sr. had fathered an illegitimate daughter, and that for some time he had been misdirecting funds from his organization to support her. If this had been almost anyone else, the latter deed would have been called embezzlement, and the perpetrator would have been facing serious prison time. On a Friday afternoon, Jackson announced that he was taking sabbatical for "a period of contemplation and reflection" (but not repentance or restitution).

    PRUDEN: Duck Dynasty's Robertson family teaches Hollywood a lesson

    The uproar over "Duck Dynasty" should be studied forever in the business schools as a priceless teaching exercise in marketing quackery. Television executives are so highly paid because they're supposed to be so smart. Rarely have so many smart guys been so out to lunch.

  • LETTER TO THE EDITOR: 'Duck Dynasty' battle is about money

    Last night for the first time, I watched an episode of "Duck Dynasty" and enjoyed it. That's good news because I saw an entertaining reality show in which I really liked the characters, all of whom seemed "real." That's bad news because I put another viewer in the A&E "win" column in the midst of all this mess. I don't agree with A&E's stance on the issues here ("Huge backlash mounts over suspension of 'Duck Dynasty' star Phil Robertson." Web, Dec. 19).
