Re “Accounting for the truth” (Editorial, April 2):

“After several weeks of secret meetings, Republicans in the state Senate and House passed the bill, known as HB84. No hearings where experts weighed in on the negatives and positives of the proposed policy. No hint of what was coming in public pronouncements from the governor or legislative leaders. No rallying of various interest groups that might support the bill.

“Instead, Statehouse Republicans took advantage of the perks of their supermajority and passed a major bill without consulting anyone else.”

It would be possible to change just six words of this quote from your fishwrapper, and I would be describing what happened when Obamacare was rammed through. I can’t, for the life of me, remember your outcry when that happened.

I am not saying that I agree with either of them, but I am saying it appears that Col. Harry M. Ayers was wrong. The Star only becomes the attorney for the most defenseless when the publisher’s party has been wronged.
