You cannot afford the letter space for me to rebut the dozen or so untruths and exaggerations offered by William Hoffman in your recent issue ("Reap the whirlwind," SBN December). Let me just suggest that at least Richard Nixon had the honor not to demand a rightful recount of the stolen election thanks to Kennedy and Richard Daley. He further had the decency to resign when found guilty of malfeasance.
The "creep" has neither honor nor decency. Are only "left wing hacks" available to you to engage to write a Washington column? Surely you can do better.

If one wants excuses from liberals, and convoluted logic to distort the facts about the worst president in American history, one needs only to listen to network "news," or to the Clinton News Network, A.K.A. Ted Turner/Hanoi Jane's CNN. But evidently SBN remains unconvinced that William Hoffman's nonsense is an insult to average intelligence, never mind a publication that seeks input from sharp minds in the business community.
Why do we need lies that masquerade as opinion in SBN? I respectfully suggest that if SBN insists Hoffman's bias fits the business agenda, then it should have an equal time balance forum for response, not just letters like this one. A political corner as it were. Otherwise, it would seem obvious that Hoffman's column has a purpose other than for business at SBN, the First Amendment notwithstanding. Shall we redefine sex, lies and abuse of power anyone?
