My First Letter to the Editor of the NY Times

I sent the letter below in response to this in the times yesterday: CINTRA WILSON CRITICAL SHOPPER | J.C. PENNEY Playing to the Middle Published: August 11, 2009 To the Editor: I found Ms. Wilson's hate mongering comments about people of size offensive. Disguised as clever, these comments show Ms. Wilson's true colors as a member of the media who ignorantly buys into a hatred of all who do not physically conform to her own, small minded, perception of who deserves respect and civility. This kind of hatred is analogous to racism. While I can't know if Ms. Wilson is a racist it is evident she is a mean spirited snob. Shame on the Ms. Wilson and the Times for such ugliness.
