David Honig’s opinion piece (“Where’s
the Social Justice in That,” Feb. 15) left me stunned and insulted in a rapid
His statement not to advertise because
you will have too many customers you don’t want? Huh? When’s the last time we
had to worry about too many customers … unless you were giving away free TVs; and
then that’s not a customer. Retail will take money. It’s green.
Then his whole implied notion that
the banjo people should advertise on urban radio is about as sensible as chrome
rims on bluegrass radio. Advertisers are trying to find an audience most likely
to buy their product. Best results for least spent.
Mr. Honig’s PC piece will only
accomplish one thing: bitterness and distrust. Most people are decent. This accusatorial
take on the world is not good in the FCC or government or
in life in general.
