In op­po­si­tion to re­cent col­umn

Dear Ed­i­tor: I have been “ wrestling” with Mr. Har­well’s col­umns from time to time. I re­al­ize that his ar­ti­cles re­flect his opin­ions, and they are thought pro­vok­ing ones. But he also states dis­turb­ing “ facts” to his read­ers that I ques­tion. I would be in­ter­ested in know­ing where the data was ob­tained that led Mr. Har­well to state in the Feb. 3 edi­tion of The Cov­ing­ton News that, “ The ma­jor­ity of peo­ple in this county who send their kids to pub­lic schools are renters, and the ma­jor­ity of those kids come from the lower seg­ments of our so­ci­ety.” Just what is the lower seg­ment of our so­ci­ety?

Since Mr. Har­well’s ar­ti­cles ap­pear ev­ery week as part of The Cov­ing­ton News, both he and The Cov­ing­ton News share the re­spon­si­bil­ity for ac­cu­rate and ac­count­able in­for­ma­tion or is the pur­pose of the col­umn to of­fend and dis­turb its read­ers with his opin­ions?
