Letter: That clears it up!
Re “Does the ‘n-word’ belong in the Monitor?” (Opinion page, Jan. 22):
Editor Felice Belman has cleared it up for me in her Report To Readers column. The “n-word” does not belong on the front page of the Monitor, but does belong on the fourth section of the Sunday Monitor. It does not belong in a news story, but does belong in an opinion piece.
It does not belong if it offends a single individual, but does belong if it offends a large group of people. It certainly belongs in the Report To Readers defending the use of the “n-word” in the Monitor.
