Letter to the editor

Student journalist shows his skills

April 17, 2009

I’d like to respond to the thought-provoking article by Nathan Sparks in the April 10, 2009 issue entitled “UWRF receives national online attention after student complaint.”

I especially appreciate that Mr. Sparks cited his sources, including the Web site http://atlasshrugs2000.type-
pad.com/atlas_shrugs/2009/03/university-of-wisconsins-jewhating-professor-kiril-petkov.html.

This is good journalistic practice; all too rare these days. I don’t know Ms. Montgomery or Professor Petkov. However, I have read the cited Web page and much of the rest of the Web site http://atlasshrugs 2000.typepad.com. The Web site is very clearly run by a virulently racist demagogue. Ms. Montgomery’s choice of this site to launch her attack on Professor Petkov reduces her credibility to less than zero in my estimation.
