Letter: Offensive advertisement
I was extremely disgusted by the Cohen & Winters law firm’s “Top O’ the Morning: Had a rough night?” advertisement in Sunday’s paper – the morning of St. Patrick’s Day – with the kelly green border and shamrock, advertising legal help for DWI. It showed an extraordinary ethnic bias – after all, this wasn’t the morning after New Year’s Eve!
Although my name is Murphy, I do not have a drop of Irish blood but would be proud if I did. In addition, I cannot think that someone of any ethnicity should be proud of offering to help someone (for a fee) beat charges of DWI and avoid any kind of punishment meant to deter driving under the influence, and possibly the next time murdering or maiming someone in an automobile accident. Shame on you!
