Argue issues

I take issue with Melody Cassidy’s letter written in response to the comments made by David Scott. While I do agree that free trade with Mexico is not in the best interests of the citizens of the United States, I do not agree with the way Ms. Cassidy presented her argument.

Ms. Cassidy made several good points, but she tainted her letter with repeated attacks on Mr. Scott’s character. There is no reason to assume that since Mr. Scott is a law school student he does not care about the working class. Nor did Mr. Scott at any point state that we should lower our standards of living.

These are just a few of the comments that Ms. Cassidy made throughout her letter. There i no place for these comments in an otherwise intelligent and well-researched editorial letter. The comments are more appropriate for a presidential campaign ad than they are for an editorial letter, and unfortunately Ms. Cassidy is not the first, nor will she bet the last person who feels compelled to attack a person’s character and not simply that person’s viewpoint.
