Missed my point


Dear edi­tor,

In re­ply to Nathan Rich re: my letter in the June 7 is­sue of The Com­pass, I have to say he missed my point com­pletely.

I didn’t men­tion any­thing about the poor and needy peo­ple. But in re­ply to his con­cerns, of course I am aware and con­cerned, not just from a so­cial­ist per­spec­tive.

Was he im­ply­ing I am a per­son who ad­vo­cates ma­te­ri­al­ism, greed and self­ish­ness? He couldn’t be fur­ther from the truth, as those who know me would agree.

I wasn’t mak­ing right­eous moral state­ments ei­ther, but po­lit­i­cal ones. I quoted facts that had come out dur­ing the re­cent elec­tion cam­paigns. My ref­er­ence to seek­ing wis­dom is surely what we all want to have in deal­ing with daily life, in all cir­cum­stances.

Rather than read­ing be­tween the lines, let’s just read what is writ­ten, shall we? Joy French-Cole­man
